Nice to see this. It is definitely faster than the builtin reader.

Unfortunately though, it also fills the available memory faster.

Actually, it is pretty unusable without having swap; without swap, the
unit comes to an unwanted halt pretty soon, because the engine seems to
preprocess pages continuously (which is cool) until memory runs out
(which is not so cool). Most of the time, a reset can not be avoided.

Maybe it would not be so much of a problem to put an extra check in the
code that stops processing pages when memory is low...
