    Yeah. It increases memory pressure for the _complex_ and _slow_
    algorithms. Agreed.

    See my two-liner suggestion (which is admittedly not even compiled, so the
    one disadvantage it might have is that it might need to be debugged. But
    it's only two lines and doesn't actually change any fundamental part of
    any existing algorithms, so debugging shouldn't be a big problem.
