These are two different goals. One is the goal of "speeding up the
client" (though it doesn't say which specific operations); the other
is a particular implementation change that may or may not help achieve
the first goal.

I guess what I'm trying to say is: we should solve our scalability
problems through well-defined, targeted changes that we know --
through profiling -- will speed up specific kinds of operations.
Those are the most helpful kinds of issues to file, because we can
have confidence that the changes will have the desired effect.
Guessing doesn't work when it comes to performance problems. You have
to profile (the way Brandon Ehle has been, for example) and propose
changes based on the results.
