No kidding. But profiling suggests that something is very wrong in
the algorithm we're using, it may be quadratic or worse.

I think that would be a big win for vhdl-mode users. This business of
supporting 5 or 6 different comment styles and multiple string
delimiters too makes the C code very hairy. Somebody like Stefan
Monnier might be able to disentangle it, but we have nobody like that
available right now.
