Subject Re: 2.0 performance

Ditto on what Dean said.

Typecasts are usually a symptom of a different problem. The other problem
should be fixed, thus removing the need for a typecast.

Per Mike's later note, the patches are based on the NPL. In that case, I'm
definitely -1. The MPL 1.1 is not bad, but has issues; the NPL has even
more :-(

I would love to hear how the MPM achieves its performance. Even if you
can't contribute source code, it would be great to contribute the ideas
(which are non-copyrightable; I'm assuming there isn't a patent in
there... :-)
