The dilemma here is that I read other mailing lists besides

Which is why we need to get the patch in upstream. If you
can't make it faster, you can at least make what you're
comparing against slower. :-)

Seriously, I'd have a hard time believing that supporting <CR><LF>
endings would noticably impact performance if it were done as part of
upstream BASH.

You haven't been paying attention, it seems.

We've already been over this ground.  The performance impact for turning
on bash's automatic CRLF handling is profound.  That's why we're here.

But now that this code has been thoroughly chastised and left by itself to
think about its bad behavior, it might have better behavior.  Eric, shall
we turn it back on and see? ;-)
