We're not planning any *major* performance work in the near future,
but I do see the occasional performance change checked in.  I think
two hits are:

* path conversions and stat()
* fork/exec overhead

Since the code functions properly, it gets lower priority than other
problems and projects.  This makes it a good candidate for
user-contributed patches.
