I was specifically referring to your assertion that you would have a
hard time believing that CRLF handling would impact performance. Since
bash already has CRLF handling that impacts performance severely I
don't see any basis in believing that just getting something included
upstream would be a guarantee that there would be no performance
But, Eric has weighed in on the subject and if he says that there isn't
much impact with his change, I certainly believe him.
