Well,


I didn't say the buffer library is slow.
I said, it's much faster than using "^".

For not-that-intensive string-concat's,
2^" is fast enough, but when you do often
concat strings, then buffer-module is
faster.

Do you mean the buffer module should be made better or do you think,
the "^" operator should be implemented differently?
If Buffer-module might be even faster, when it's changed,
that's fine, but IMHO it's quite fast.

Ciao,
   Oliver
