I am not fundamentally opposed to this idea, but you will have to test
this no-gencc version of TeXmacs on all architectures which work at
this moment first. When I have time, I will also check whether there
are no hidden performance losses (or gains; either in time or space).

I am not sure; we have to make detailed performance compairisons.

Hmmm, we'll see; remember that we might replace tree -> ttree
at the end anyway.
