Here's the patch from that thread updated to new API's. My test file is
about 50 megs, and seeking to the end of it shows a marginal reduction in
cpu usage. I suspect the differense would be much more noticable on a
500meg file, but can't seem to find anything in that size.

Seekbacks seem like a bad idea to me. But maybe searching for jjjjjjjj as a
64bit value, remembering last 32bits of last read. When found check if last
32bit contain RT somewhere. If it does depending on position do a few byte
reads to check for given amount of trailing 'j'.. Would be more efficient,
but way more complex to implement.
