Right. I wasn't thinking that through. The tricky part is saying bump at
the end of a sentence. That means a period followed by a space, end of
line, or end of data.

Ok, so that should take care of limiting phrases to sentences. And that
would work for this:
"(Two characters are stripped, and the bumped once.)"
The "." and ")" are stripped, and since at least one of those chars is a
bump char, then bump the position.

So: "this bumps|and so does this | one" bump the position at both pipes,
Together, something like this would bump the position twice:
"This is the end. |Start of another sentence."
Two bumps. But I don't see that as a problem.
