Would it be possible (or a good idea?) to have not just the number of direct replies to a post displayed, but the total number of posts in the reply threads? I don't have a very fast connection at home, and I prefer to read the replies to threads that have the most discussion - it would be useful to know how much content is behind any given link (if you know what I mean...).

[Corion]: Nicholas Clark++ # read for a multichar block-delimiter by scanning for the last char, and only then check whether the whole delimiter was read.
[Corion]: At least if you're appending the data read to a larger buffer, this means you avoid the situation of "a delimiter was found but the other half has not been read yet"
choroba misses the context
[Corion]: choroba: Optimizing how Perl reads source code on startup (and then processes it line-by-line)
[Corion]: But in general, it seems to be an interesting approach I should think about - whenever I'm searching for something, to consider if I could search for the end of the token instead of the start of the token
