I think this was the crux of disagreement that we came to last time, and 
the main reason I didn't originally think a patch would be worth the 
time to create (it may not be put into cvs).  When I have some free time 
(over the Christmas break?) I'll try make up a clean patch with the 
change - it would at the very least allow a very detailed examination of 
the pros and cons relative to the status quo.

I think that with the patch in hand I can show that it is both more 
elegant, and is no worse on memory, but I'll leave that re-discussion 
for the future!
