    I don't think there is any validity any more in the "opaque type" comment,
    and I'd rather expose the fact that it _has_ to have the rss computations
    inside of it than have more made-up interfaces to hide it.

    The fact is, the rss cannot be computed anywhere else any more, so why
    play games about it?
