This is one of the few areas where i need every microsecond i can get.

It's a virtual machine that runs a regular expression match as per here:

Regex as a Tiny "Threaded" Virtual Machine[^]

It seems trivial but this code itself ends up being part of an inner loop of an inner loop when it's being driven by a parser.

It needs to be as efficient as it can be.

My hope in using lists initially was that the framework would minimize the impact of bounds checking in the ngen'd corlib beyond what arrays already do internally but i guess that was wishful thinking
Real programmers use butterflies
