I doubt that there'd be any measurable difference, considering a) nowadays' compilers, b) the amount that function would be called (not within loops, constant times, at startup or at maybe by a user action) and c) the time the access to some environment variable (or even /etc/passwd) needs. If it works, the patch is accepted and anyone notices that it is speed critical, _then_ is the time for optimizing. BTW, have you proposed this to the GLIB team/list already? Greetings, Daniel
