Is there a way out if you do that? Does QUIT work? Also, does print
<tab> read all symtabs?
I'm not happy with introducing this slowdown. I'd like to at least
see a profile first - of some smaller example! But I guess you're
right that -readnow is not useful; maybe I should just let go...
I thought I did -readnow profiling on my previous patches in this
area without introducing such a big slowdown, but I don't know that
for a fact.
