 Hi, just passing along an idea that was suggested to me:  we have a log
 which crashes with this --

 ''Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 23855104) (tried to allocate 9
 bytes) in /var/www/html/wp-includes/pomo/streams.php on line 86''

 If you look at that line:


 you will see that it is a simple str_split(). How about if the $string
 argument is passed by reference ? The problem as it is explained to me is
 that right now the $string argument is passed by value, e.g. it is copied,
 so if this is a large string, it is going to take double space when it is
 used as an argument; instead if it is used as an argument passed by
 reference it will not take any extra space at all.

 What do you think, would this help POMO_Reader::str_split() work with
 large strings ?
