Subject: [PATCH v2 5/5] doc: remove most recommendations for sleepy_penguin
Date: Fri, 20 Dec 2019 01:39:17 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20191220013917.17212-6-e@80x24.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20191220013917.17212-1-e@80x24.org>

sleepy_penguin is still a hair faster than libffi+fiddle,
but most users probably won't notice.  So stop documenting
it, but just don't introduce performance regressions for
existing users.
