mine do about three times a week.

I use a source based distro over here on my netbook(Samsung NC10),
so I'm often working while updating and nearly every compiled packet
changes some binary in PATH so it's /quite/ annoying over here
to wait about 1.5 seconds for dmenu during that time...
Now it's just 0.05 seconds!

Well, since the shellscript got a noticeable lag that shouldn't exist
in any graphical software after all, I suppose speed is a criterion
for being suckless in this case.

So imho the c-version should be mainline, even if the source should be
cleaned before(\t -> ' ', source style?, ...)
