Ouch. I'll try to do a diff and follow up, probably not until much later.

For the text library, my main interest is performance. I've been far more
focused on making the code correct and complete than on making it fast, but
now that the API is stable and the test coverage is solid, performance
deserves more attention.

What specifics would be useful?

   - Reproducible, realistic (but preferably small) benchmarks
   - Patches that speed things up

Thanks for asking!
