What is UI?

Most of us don't use Windows, and we have no experience
with WinCE. The WinCE ports were done by people who may not
currently subscribe to the list. Could you explain a bit
how having GNU Go listen to a port will help with WinCE?

Speed is *very* important for the pattern matcher.
There are actually two different implementations
of the pattern matcher in the source code. The DFA
version by Tanguy Urvoy is used because it is fastest.

Of course you can reimplement the pattern matcher as
a non-default option if this is what you need to do
to get it to run on a small machine, or even fork the
program but I doubt if we are interested in changing
the default pattern matcher to a different scheme if
it turns out to be slower.
