I know Dave previously said that he is interested to see customisations of the vector presentation. I for one, am very interested in your work.
I can comment, but perhaps not all that informed. I'm all for performance improvements and code cleanup, and I think Dave is too. But I don't see a history
of large code submission successes. It's quite possible that Dave has changed a lot of this code in his absence - he's reported to be working on quilting support. If he has changed a lot there may be trouble in integrating with his work, and that could spell problems, frustration, and wasted time for both the contributors and for Dave.
So my best advice is to make small localized improvements. If they're fairly small and clearly improvements, there's no reason they shouldn't be integrated quickly into the code base. I say this knowing that large improvements could be made, but not without the potential for problems, frustration, and wasted time mentioned above. Maybe Dave is watching and can offer suggestions - if not now, then hopefully soon.
Hope this helps...
