That is fine. I hope nothing I have said would be interpreted to the
contrary, and I can't imagine why you might think that this proposition
rushes me (were you waiting on me for something?). I have the least
knowledge of or interest in the performance side. Having said that, I *very*
much want us to implement a lowest-common-denominator,
it-will-never-matter-what-the-guts-look-like API for the FO Tree to deliver
the property values. That is totally independent of the way properties are
stored and computed.
