I very much agree with this sentiment. I have in fact done some
output-record hacking in the past to speed up an application. The
fact that the functions I used were undocumented certainly made the
work harder to do. But in addition I worried that the things I had
done would have disappeared from the next version of CLIM, and I'd
have to spend even more time figuring out how to get the speedups.
Which makes me wonder how much time I'd really be saving over X if I
invest in even more output-record hacking.
