What do you do after finding the first pair? As far as I can tell,
this approach is only useful at the start of the string. Once you've
gotten into two-way, searching for the next occurrence of the first
two characters is not a useful operation. Of course it looks to me
like the hideous quadratic-runtime SSE4.2 code is still present...
This just needs to be removed...
