IPP improvements


Back around 9/10/98 I dove into the WML IPP processor and re-wrote some of
it to be more efficient. At that time I posted my results, but no one was
maintaining WML and it didn't get rolled into a release. I just checked the
newest release on the web-site and see that my changes have not been
implemented - the same inefficient text handling methods are being used.

Back then, I did some comparisons between the old IPP and my IPP. On one
particularly large test case (including all of the WML files) the old one
used 1m34.20s of user time while mine used 0m5.75s. Others reported success
in installing the patch and getting speed improvements.

I'm wondering if this got lost in the upgrade to 1.6.8 or there is some
other reason why that work was not rolled into the WML release.
