My guess is that they are very complex rather than inefficient. But if you 
think you can improve them please feel free to have a go and see if you 
can speed them up. I can't promise a (material) reward though, other than 
acknowledgment in the Introduction section --- many names already in there 
should be familiar to people here as they are TeX hackers :)

I am referring not to my macros (which are all very simple) but to those 
of Tiqwah, written by Yannis Haralambous, which is where most of the time 
is spent during processing.

Kind regards
