On my dataset the shortcut speeds up readline() 400% on top of the default C implementation. 

I can take a look to why the C implementation is slow (although it is documented as "slowish").

The regular pattern returns either a line chunk or a newline (sequence) but not both. To read a line there is therefore a minimum of two peek() calls. One for the line content and the last for the newline. Since the peek is called with a value of 2, the newline sequence \r\n should be retrieved as is. There is no test for that.
