I really don't know. I am out of my depth with all this. I am just  
trying to do what was originally asked when Nigels patch was  
rejected. I thought you would have more of an idea as to why.  I put  
the START_TIMER at the start of the function and STOP_TIMER("function  
name()") at the end. In the trunk with out the patch, I did this in  
the methods listed below and with the patch, the same methods minus  
the _fast ones as they have been refactored.


  But in any case the numbers don't lie.

I'm confused. The first patch I submitted today, you rejected because  
I had used tabs - fair enough. How was the original non-cosmetic code  
allowed in the repository if one of the first rules of rejection is  

I am using spaces now so I don't know why in the email it looks like  
the cosmetic problems are still there. Maybe mailmail is doing  
something. I will attach the file next time round instead of pasting  
it in.

So just to clarify for this patch, you don't want me to fix the  
cosmetic problems with the function prototypes, but all code that I  
touch, you do?
