I see, but it's not *just* the extra characters, there's the mental
overhead of having to remember to thread the state through, and
there's the added complexity of the lazy parsing/reading which could
be harder to debug. Whether that's a good trade-off for performance I
don't know, but IMO it's not an API that would be easy to use.
