Scanning for ... isn't even required; it's easier than that. You load the
results into a temporary. If you hit a ..., everything prior is premessage
and everything after is ordinary. If you never hit a ..., everything is
ordinary. So this remains quite trivial to implement even when streaming
byte by byte, without having to even scan out.

In otherbwords, I agree with you.
