Easier to implement?  BM is so simple, I can't imagine something
being simpler.

Indeed the LOC is low.  Very cool!  Considering that we can
precal a bndm_t for '<!--#' and '--->'.
It is certainly more advanced.

Ian, since you were doing the mod_include.c optimizations anyway,
can you check this out?

Btw, do we have any string matching code in apr or apr-util?  I
can see the applicability of decent string matchers in other parts
than mod_include.
