Last time I used setjmp/longjmp was probably 1990. Back then it was  
considered a seriously tacky thing to do and a cause of lost  
performance.  I think BrouHaHa got non-trivially faster after I beat  
Eliot up to get him to stop using it in the interpreter code.

Is it less of an issue these days?
