Is there anything I changed that you think might be better done a
different way?

No, just very minimal testing.

Actually, the main thing I'm interested in is whether the bloom filter
is ever beneficial. I took it out trying to streamline the code and
shaved about 8% off the lookup time for symbols in the main program,
but I didn't investigate how the change affects symbols not found in
the first file searched. Would you be interested in running some tests
to determine if it might be useful to try adding it back?

Since it seems to be working/non-broken right now, I'll probably go
ahead and commit soon unless you find a major problem I've overlooked.
Then we can work on improving it once it's in the repo.
