I am tempted to take your word for it ... but I'd rather have a couple
of seasoned .NET guys have a pop at it and see how it can be pushed

/me thinks he likes Object header based stuff as we already have the Object
in the cache when we're working on it ... (looking at the Parrot design,
they seem to see cache fluff as an important speed criterion) .
