I tried several ways to make the appendable string class work well for
this situation, and all the methods I tried were somewhere around 1/10th
than treating the problem as a buffering problem instead.

So, here is another version of my buffering patches designed to be a bit
more general.  I originally made them to a branch off the 0.6c tag, but
I have merged them in with the tip of the main repository.  These
changes have also received much better testing than my first attempt.

Bryan's repository contains some code that complicates matters a little
by running things through a zlib decompressor.  I should be able to
merge that in as well, but I want to do so carefully.

Have fun (if at all possible),
The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they
be properly armed.  -- Alexander Hamilton
