Subject RE: assistance with dictionary lookup issue

I'll take a look at the patch. Also be aware of
which talks about a way of enhancing performance  -- if willing to assume annotations (BaseTokens
currently) are sorted. Currently it's always BaseToken and always sorted, just not sure if
we want to code to that assumption.

Subject: assistance with dictionary lookup issue

Pei helped me track down an issue with performance I'd noticed in the
dictionary annotator, and I have filed the issue here:

I implemented a quick and dirty proof of concept fix and noticed
dramatic performance improvement.  I attached the patch to the issue,
but it involves changing an interface (currently does not try to fix
other implementing classes so obviously not ready for primetime), so I
wanted to solicit the list first in case anyone with better knowledge of
that module has some better engineering ideas than what I came up with.
