[liblouis-liblouisxml] Re: Issue 5 in liblouisxml: Translating short strings takes an extremely long time and gobbles up CPU if braillePages=yes

liblouisutdml reads an initialization file and configuration file when 
it starts. There is also extra processing for very short files. I 
haven't noticed unusual delays when using the file2brl program. This 
applies to liblouisxml as well.
