Not complaining about wc-ng, but about the performance of it. That's a
big difference.

I'm perfectly aware of the radical changes that are going on. And that's
what worries me. Every time I check what has changed I find more and
more things getting worse. And every time I raise my concerns I'm
promised that things will get better - and next time I check another
(usually small) thing I'm depending on got missing/removed or changed in
a way I can't use it anymore.

Also, the speed hasn't improved much in the last 8 months. It's still 11
times (!!) slower than 1.6.x. Since there was some talk about having 1.7
finished for devs to test it this fall - well, I think you can guess my
concerns here.
