Darin's string changes
Darin has more or less finished landing his string changes on the trunk.
The upshot is:
time went down by about 2-3%.
time went down by about 7-8%.
open time went down by about 3-4%.
went down by several hundred kilobytes (ranging from about 150kB to 500kB or so
depending on the exact OS/compiler/flags one looks at). That's around 2% of
total codesize. A bit over half the savings was codesize reduction in core
Darin, dbaron, jst, dougt, and all others who
helped make this patch happen deserve a big thank you.
