But there is still the original problem that string concatenation is very 
slow, when in 2.3.0 it wasn't.  Yes, there are undoubtedly other, better 
approaches to the general problem, but the fact remains that concatenation 
is now very slow.  Ideally, I would write a specific test for 
concatenation, compare 2.3.0 with the immutable strings version, and then 
file a ticket, if appropriate, but I'm not optimistic about finding time 
to do so anytime soon.  If anyone else wants to jump in and write such a 
test, then please feel free to do so.
