For these two, I wrote most if not all of the code.  (Also one komaster
 - pattern based tactical reading
 - tree-based replacement of DFA

I wouldn't be surprised if the experimental reading code is currently broken,
likewise with the tree-based pattern matching.  The main benefit of the
tree-base reading is that, at least for the tactical reading, it is faster than
the DFA.  Some of my recent DFA work is see if I can speed it up.

I support both of the quoted comments above, and will be happy to be
the maintainer of these bits of code.
