I've spent all day on a particular optimization only to run into wall where i just can't get it to generate the correct code.

It's super frustrating. I hate when some bugs crop up and debugging them is like trying to push an air bubble out of a waterbed. It just doesn't work. You squash it in one place, it comes back somewhere else.

The problem is I really should be converting this to a partial DFA but i haven't figured out how, so I was doing it another way, and turns out it's probably and anti-pattern (not that this is common enough code to be a pattern in the first place)
