Hello Kyle,

first off, please do not top-post.  Thank you.

I'm not sure what your discussion is supposed to lead to.

We've spent quite some time getting Libtool 2.2.6 to be faster for many
situations than 1.5.x, while *retaining* full compatibility with limited
systems/shells/whatever other helper tools (and of course necessarily
being slow on those limited systems).

If you have applications that still show much libtool overhead, then
please step forward with pointing out your package, and the use case,
the system, shell etc. that you're using.  It really needs such specific
data for me to do anything about speed.  And there is little point in
complaining about 1.5.x speed without even trying out 2.2.6.
