I created a pull request a while back:
which contains a slight refactoring of the Grid Tree by John ZuHone, as well as a bitarray implementation and a first set of "grid visitor" functions, similar in spirit to the octree visitor functions.
I was hoping to request a review with an aim to get it merged in before turning it on. The grid visitor functions haven't been turned on yet, but I think it's worth getting feedback in advance of that, and also so that the bitarray code (which should have been its own PR, sadly) can get used elsewhere.
A while back, Sam and I looked for performance regressions; the biggest one was in the generic chunking system and its impact on patch based data. This should both improve the speed of that system for grid patch datasets as well as reduce the memory overhead. Getting this PR landed, and then turning it on at a later date will be a big step forward in getting performance improvements as well as memory reduction.
