I just don't think a slow down of a command that isn't used that often,
is a serious enough issue to justify a release now. People are making
it sound like the command doesn't work, it does. It's just slower than
it would be otherwise. Is it inconvient, yes. Will we fix it, yes.
But we've got other issues that we'd look really bad releasing a 1.1.1
without fixing. I just don't see a 1.1.1 release any earlier than 2 or
3 weeks out.
