I stand corrected. Apparantly there *is* a chapter on incremental
lexing in his thesis.

In my reading of that thesis N odd years ago, I was so focused on the
incremental parsing part, that I'm sure I read it and forgot about it.
Wagner's thesis really is interesting if you are a fan of parsing

My apologies for any confusion I've added.
