Please note that there's nothing religious about this: 
if you come up with a counting version of the codec which 
has similar performance or is even faster, I'd have no 
objections at all about your checkin.

BTW, you could easily add your codec to the Python codec
registry as e.g. 'utf8alt'. People could then enable
it on memory starved machines by editing the codec
alias list in encodings/aliases.py.
