Here is a C implementation of the two-way algorithm that should work as a drop-in replacement for Objects/stringlib/fastsearch.h.

Benchmarking so far, it looks like it is a bit slower in a lot of cases. But it's also a bit faster in a some other cases and oodles faster in the really bad cases.

I wonder if there's a good heuristic cutoff (for the needle size?) where the two-way usually becomes better.
