    I suggest to try it; you might be surprised.  I tried it on a 7MB mbox
    file, and didn't see any significant slowdown.  The reason is simple:
    the mbox buffer is almost always narrowed, and find_newline, which is
    the workhorse of the function I wrote, and also the main suspect, only
    looks within the restriction.

Well, I could arrange to narrow to the current message
before running the test.  Maybe that will do enough.
