I've been experimenting with the attached patch which produces a
significant speed-up for Info output (3% or so). The idea is to avoid
repeated calls to the Perl encoding routines for text to be output in
order to calculate their byte length (this information is needed for
tag tables) - it seems to be faster to call them fewer times with more
text each time. It collects text to be counted and counts it all
together whenever the byte offset is needed (in e.g. _add_location).
However the output isn't right yet.

I don't want to hold up the release for this (I've been feeling
impatient for a release for many months) but if we get it working in
the next couple of days it would be nice to go in. Maybe someone with
better understanding of the code than me (Patrice?) will see easily
where this patch is going wrong.
