If the algorithm has looked at N lines (where N is a reasonably big
number, like 10K), and found nothing exciting, then it would be
reasonable to bail out, won't it?  "Paragraphs" like the one presented,
with 200K lines, are a pretty terminal case, and no "real" text ever
looks like that.  I think.
