You should, maybe, take a look at qstring.cpp before you make such 
uninformed statements.

When you do, keep in mind that these 12k5loc do not even contain direct 
(as in zerocopy) utf-8/l1 and utf-8/utf16 comparisons, yet. Optimizing 
those is what earns you a slot at CppCon. Well, not anymore, that ship 
has sailed.

Thanks,
Marc
