been neglecting UP a bit.

I'm not overly fond of this one, either; I did it at Roland's suggestion
(it's all _his_ fault, yeah, _that's_ the ticket! :-); his opinion IIRC
was that the UP case will perform better without the extra pointer
dereferences. I agree that it's a potential source of pain such as the
one you point out.
