For pretty much the reasons you list. Only support for NUL-terminated
strings, no support for passing successive blocks, poor performance
for repeated searches of particularly nondeterministic expressions,
and so on. We agree for pretty much the same reasoning. (I'm not sure
why you assumed otherwise.)

I'm very familiar with the literature. I think it's also worth looking
at the work of Grathwohl et al. (2013, 2014). Anyway, this is why I
say such a library would need "quite careful planning."
