I actually do need the location since I need to get the resulting match.  I 
went ahead and tried to iterate the array and it was MUCH faster than I 
expected it to be!  Of course, considering the machine I'm running this on is a 
monster (2.66 GHz 8 cores, 24GB of RAM) it shouldn't have surprised me!
