    It actually does not do that.

    The language scanner performs some optimizations on a very
    low level.  The stream of tokens the new scanner produces is
    thus different from the Zend scanner's output.  And as I
    might have mentioned on Saturday, it is not a port of the
    Zend scanner to re2c.  It is a complete new implementation
    based on walking through zend_language_parser.h.
