fast, small implementation of 'sed'

'minised' is the fast, small sed originally distributed in the GNU toolkit and still distributed with Minix. The GNU Project removed it in favor of a sed built around an enhanced regexp package, but it's better for some uses (in particular, it's faster and less memory-intensive).
