Hi Joe,

I haven't tested it within the front end of Galaxy to see whether it's made a 
big difference there.  So far, it's been used to transfer data around in the 
backend.

It'd be much more efficient if this data were only loaded once, and already 
loaded in Galaxy so it did not need to transfer multiple times.  Either sharing 
or libraries could be used to accomplish this.
