Just curios, but as a direct replacement for however you were
using forehead, was it slow?  Or just the uberjar functionality?
Uberjar is konwn to be slow in the current release, but Jason van Zyl
has improved its performance in CVS, I believe.

When used as a direct replacement for forehead, it should be
roughly comparable in speed.

No problem.  I'll get the fix you need into forehead, which
you can certainly continue using if you wish.
