I applied a patch similar to this to master, but I forgot to apply it
to the branch.  I'm sorry about that.

Thanks for these benchmarks.  The results are overall very good, I
think.  Particularly given that I haven't actually spent time
optimizing the code.  Thanks to your work, you've given me a few
places to start.

FWIW, I think I know where the memory problem is and it should be
relatively easy to fix with little additional CPU overhead.
