 don't bother trying to keep in sync with underlying stream.  Maintain a moving window

 Does your patch work with GMCS, or should I have a look ?

+It works on gmcs, it's passed a full bootstrap, and doesn't crash on
+the test case above.
+Couple of points: I have a minor fix to make it somewhat less eager
+about shifting things off.  This'll ensure that a look-ahead of 2048
+bytes is guaranteed.
+I instrumented parse_less_than (but lost the log :-) -- it typically
+needs a lookahead of 1 tokens, the largest I remember seeing is 4
+tokens.  Since source code typically has alternating identifiers and
+short punctuation, this translates to about 30 chars of lookahead.
+Allowing for one order of magnitude in both number of lookahead tokens
+and avg. token size, I think 2048 is reasonable.
