"Plus the sort of people who can program a finite state machine probably "

That's the thing about FSM's.

You don't program them.You implement them. In hardware. That's where you get the speed from.

Of course you can implement an FSM interpreter that navigates through a state table.

Which is what YACC or Bison are.

Mine's the one with the old digital design text with the chapter on "Mealy-Moore" systems.
