Comment (by azaozz):

 Yeah, when counting words we can replace all punctuation with spaces. Will
 make things a bit easier.

 Another "speed-up" thing to try is using `editor.getBody().textContent`
 instead of `editor.getContent{'raw')`. That will give us only the text,
 with tags and entities already removed. If that works well, we will need
 to pass the context to the counting function as we will still need to
 strip tags for the Text editor (the tag stripping regex needs to catch
 html comments too).
