Hi David,

as Ralf stated, i took a look at your patches. They are on my disk, but
i did not have time to examine them closely. I thought a new release
was a major task.

But there is a huge difference between 1.6.7 and 1.6.8 : if there is no
comment block, no block parsing is done, and so ipp runs extremely fast
(and this feature is documented).
It is the most efficient way i found, and is 100% backward compatible.
I wanted to talk to you about your patches when i have time, please be
patient. It will take some days to understand what you submitted.
