I see the code length increased from 200 lines to 800.  This made me
wonder about the execution time: initial benchmarks suggest a 3x
slow-down.  Could this be a problem for loading large text files?  If
so, should we consider keeping both versions around, or by default
bypassing all the extra hooks?
