comment Is it out of line to give unsolicited constructive criticism to a programmer?
People are not computers, and people usually react poorly to unsolicited opinions telling them that they are substandard. That's why there will be animosity. It's not a matter of being "justified", it's a matter of what works and what doesn't.

comment What simple techniques do you use to improve performance?
You're right, my mistake, and I should have double-checked. I've been working on the Parrot project annotating functions as either pure or const and even documented it in the header file because of the subtle difference between the two. docs.parrot.org/parrot/1.3.0/html/docs/dev/c_functions.pod.html

Note that GCC actually optimizes this case because strlen() is marked as a pure function. I think you mean that it is a const function, not pure.
