[Continuing the thread]

mxTextTools is really fast, but it's very hard to write raw
tagtables.  It's all one state table with no symbolic jump
labels.  Blech.

I finished up the first drafts of the new StartsWith and EndsWith
RecordReaders.  The new EndsWith parser is about 50% faster than
the readlines based one.  The source code is temporarily at for anyone who
wants to review it.  Not much yet in the way of comments, I'm afraid.
