I was unclear here. I didn't mean like that it would be infrequent in "once
a month" sense. I meant that you would only need to look at the data
structure information once per set of data that you are accessing and that
you would typically extract many chunks of data from each set, so the
amortized cost of parsing the data structure would be small.

Trying to get out the door....
