Before that many methods had to be limited to or emphasize appending to 
avoid the heavy speed cost.  Appending small amounts is efficient 
because Revolution seems to leave a tiny extra room to allow for it.

This optimization for replacing same-size char chunks opens the door 
for alternate methods that can make image processing much faster or 
easier to understand.
