Perhaps the extra stuff is for non-invariant locales.

You're right.  I didn't see that we had access to the 1st character like

I've attached the necessary changes to Char.cs, icall.c, and locales.c. 
They reflect your changes in String.cs.  My only suggestion would be to
compare the culture.LCID to the Invariant ID 0x007F (as I did in
Char.cs) instead of CultureInfo.InvariantCulture.LCID.  It might get you
a little more of that speed you're after. :)
