A new version of the MasterLibrary is available at the link below. Since 
the library has grown so much, it was feeling a bit sluggish, so I did 
some refactoring that greatly reduced the amount of parsing of the 
library and went to an index based approach.   I have no idea why I did 
not take this approach in the first place, as it is both faster and 
significantly less code.

I submitted the old version with a performance related bug submission, 
in hopes that it might help the development team identify performance 
issues in the 7.x series.  The same code on the 6.x and 7.x runs very 
differently.    With the new version, you only experience a delay at 
startup and when the index is rebuilt. Unfortunately it is still slower 
on 7.0.
