Oh. Also, I noticed that you removed a handy optimization from the getattr
function. Testing a character for '_' *before* calling strcmp() will save
a good chunk of time, especially considering how often this function is
used. Basically, review whether a quick test can save a strmp() call (and
can be easily integrated).
