Believe it or not, I understand that it is possible to rewrite the 
mangler to explicitly build twines instead of copying characters into a 
buffer.  What I am saying is that we probably don't want to, and even if 
we do, we can just do it by writing a stream that builds twines.  I 
don't see the advantage of restructuring everything to avoid the stream
