Incomplete - seek feedback on this approach.

Curious to hear feedback on this approach to avoiding the deep string copy while safely reusing the TextIterator.    

I found that the big performance occurs hit occurs  down the stack from    
   WebCore::nextBreakablePosition and 
   WebCore::lineBreakIterator and finally to TextBreakIteratorQt.cpp.

Here i protect the memory using an optional argument and PassRefPtr .

Is this too disruptive?   Also - this patch isn't complete, some function signatures would need to change in other ports of TextIterator.   I just wanted to see if there were any fundamental objections to this approach before I roll up a complete patch.

i also have timing results comparing no caching, the current (unsafe) code, and this code if ppl are interested.   Also - Am i using PassRefPtr correctly?  It doesn't crash, anyway :)
