I'm sure that Matthew could speak to some of the finer points of I/O 
ports, but I think that string port performance is one of those things 
that some bright and motivated person not necessarily named Matthew 
could look into themself.

Performance of string-output-ports (especially looking at how different 
``profiles'' of write activity might influence representation) has been 
on my list-of-promising-things-I-may-never-get-to, and now we have have 
string-input-ports that we want to look at.

One thing I think Racket could use is a bunch of people with useful TODO 
lists of enhancements/additions they'd like to make to Racket, even if 
each person ultimately only checks off one or two items from their list 
this year.
