The recursion is not direct either; transformExprRecurse() is going to call this function again, but after a few more switch-case comparisons. Agreed that there's overhead in allocating list items, but is it more overhead than pushing functions on the call stack? Not sure, so I leave it to others who understand such things better than I do. If by common-case you mean a list of just one logical AND/OR operator, then I agree that creating and destroying a list may incur overhead that is relatively very expensive. To that end, I have altered the patch, attached, to not build a pending list until we encounter a node with root_expr_kind in a right branch. We're getting bushy-tree processing with very little extra code, but if you deem it not worthwhile or adding complexity, please feel free to rip it out. > > > > Is there going to be further discussion of this patch, or do I return it? > > Considering it's not been updated, nor my comments responded to, in > almost two weeks, I think we return it at this point. > Sorry, I didn't notice that this patch was put back in 'Waiting on Author' state.
