I tried a non-inlined version, and get the attached results.  Again they 
show a win in every case we care about,and the table could be modified 
to give better results for larger code points.

The win isn't nearly as large as inlining.  The second attachment shows 
the gain of inlining above and beyond the gain shown in the first 
attachment.  We could decide to create an inlined version that the hot 
code could call directly
