That's quite interesting.

At any rate Florian, I've fixed up those things you mentioned. In 1.1
I automatically treat any table with a non-zero # as an array, and I
parse using offsets rather than by cutting up the string through the
recursion. Combined with some other little efforts I've made a bit of
a performance increase, although not dramatic (within my test

With a not-particularly-representative trivial benchmark, I'm now
