A difference between this method and IVsTextScanner is that it cannot return a portion of the buffer; it will return all or nothing. In addition, it differs from IVsTextScanner where multiple clients may have IVsFullTextScanner sessions in progress, whereas IVsTextScanner fails with multiple sessions.
