Marcus, try the latest in CVS.

Would be nice, but I'm absolutely swamped on other activities.  I can't
promise anything.  Volunteers to help pick up slack most welcome.

I'm a big fan of building release candidates and letting them soak for a
week or so before going beta.  I recall this b8 performance issue
actually snuck in with something we fixed during the soak.  It was a
one-liner, seemed so innocent.  Who knew some JDKs weren't as smart as
others about StringBuffer behaviors?
