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.
