attached is my current version of loadtxt.  like i said, it's slower
for small data sets (because it reads through the whole data file
twice).  the first loop is used to figure out how much memory to
allocate, and i can optimize this by intelligently seeking through the
file.  but like i said, i haven't had the time to implement it.

all of the options should work, except for "converters" (i have never
used "converters" and i couldn't figure out exactly what it does based
on a quick read-through of the docs).

best wishes,
