(whatever that means), Tim seems to think it won't have such a big
effect. I guess we'll only know after some benchmarks.

Can we please not make any definite decisions until this issue has been resolved, some of us do actually care about performance ;-)

Yes, ideally, I'd like to see just IIBTree's but only if there are not perfomance implications. I think BTrees sit low enough in the stack that it's perfectly justifiable to have both an I BTree and an L BTree.

If having two isn't acceptable, then why do we have an I and O BTree's, not to mention the special ones used for in-memory ZODB indexes? Surely we should just have one BTree class?
