There are lots of articles on fast string searching, e.g.
I think it would be time well spent for RR to implement at least the
"Self-Tuning Boyer-Moore string search" at

If you're running it once, maybe you don't care. But if it's in a loop
of 100 or 1000 then there's a big difference.
Anything that RR can do to speed up low-level routines, the better off
we'll all be.
