Actually, I have extensive experience with javacc, but as Daniel 
pointed out it is a waste of time and effort to optimize non-critical 
code paths.  Basically, you have a trade off between fast code and 
complex code (i.e. more expensive to maintain and improve), so unless 
it affects real world performance, I personally will always choose the 
simple code.
