My unstated (definitely understated) point is that predicate->bitset
will never return in the general case, which isn't much different from
how long it will take predicate->char-set to return on systems that use
a four-byte character representation.
Yep, I understood. Just a little bit of wry academic humor there, on my
Clearly people who use 4-byte char types will have to stear clear of
ops that are linear in the type size.
