Have to build from source.  (Though we're going to try to get the Maven repo
updated.  Long story.)

Note that lazy decoding only applies to strings -- they are decoded from
UTF-8 bytes to String objects on first access.  Sub-messages are still
eagerly decoded, although we've been thinking about adding support for lazy
sub-messages.  (It's not always as great as it seems -- lazy decoding adds a
lot of bookkeeping overhead, especially if you want to be thread-safe.
 We've actually discovered that the lazy UTF-8 decoding is a loss in some
use cases; it will be tuned further for the next release.)
