(I think I must be missing the wavelength here...)

What is the "working set" and how does Jim's suggested change get it
down to a reasonable size? It seems to me that what Jim is suggesting
makes individual working sets bigger (if I understand the term
correctly), not smaller; and that he's suggesting it because calling
styles make it unnecessary for the fs to be so fussy now.

... But I'm not sure.

Somebody please clarify? :-)

I'm confused.

In the past, Greg, you've suggested that we not worry too much about
getting fine-grained editor pool granularity.

Meantime, Ben just checked in a change that makes the filesystem
editor use per-object subpools.

Meantime, the working copy update/checkout editor has been using
per-object subpools for a long time now. :-)

I'm not arguing with anything you're saying above; rather, I'm simply
failing to understand the proposed changes, or even what's motivating
change here.
