st: Recode slow
Is it normal that recode should be very slow with large numbers of
"rules"? I find a recode statement with >400 value assignments adds
something of the order of a minute to a job.
N is moderately large (75k) but I wonder if recode is linear in N
but non-linear in the number of rules or assignments.
If so, any tips for efficiency? Break up the command into several
smaller recodes? Ship out the equivalences to a lookup table and
