I stated my veto and provided the justification that covers both r1700305
and r1698359. So, could you please revert both of them? Reworking and
adding changes on top of it is going to increase the mess and will be harder
to review.

Frankly, I don't have the numbers that would prove the noticeable performance
benefit from replacing byte-by-byte parsing with chunk-based parsing. So, this
is not on my current priority list.
