  It may be faster, but that doesn't mean the tradeoff is right.  ;)
Ideally, this shouldn't take a lot of space, simply because we don't
want to exclude platforms with substantial *memory* constraints.  But
we can let benchmarkers decide what the right tradeoff it; the size
isn't that big of a concern for me.  (I made the right tradeoff -- I
traded empty memory slots for filled ones!  512MB is a nice start. ;)
