As I said before, there are opportunities to make redesign code faster and
smaller. To compare the two, we need to see the things that are unique to
the pull parsing approach. And more important than that, faster and smaller
will not trump cleaner and more flexible (at least for me).

OK, this all-or-nothing approach is news to me. So Glen actually better
understood how matters stood on this issue than I did.
