Re: FUP and LAG

Could it be .... your implementation?

The package itself is actually quite useful, when not done over-the-top.  
It caused lag at river for a few weeks until we tracked it down to a huge 
amount of fileread() calls.  We re-implemented those calls with better 
code and voila!  Problem solved.
