There is your CopyReadLineText speedup, but I think there are too many
open questions on it, e.g.:

* should we change the line-end detection mode in text (non-CSV)
mode by looking for an LF preceded by an even number of
backslashes, or some similar logic?
* how do we decide when to use the memchr tests rather than char by
char tests?
* is there a more economical way to code the searcher? (although I
could live with it for now)

So I suggest we take it out of the queue for now and kick it back to you.
