Rev's regex processor is optimized C code in the engine, and it seems
to run fast enough for me. I'm probably going be grabbing maybe 100
lines of text at at time (if I knew how many I wouldn't need this
function), so I think the limiting factor is going to be just the
speed of the web servers involved.
