Oh, if you have made further research on it, could you please
expand a bit on 'for key, value in table' ?
Is the slowdown for all cases ? Is it merely a consequence of the
slowdown of another operation ?
I often (read potentially a lot of times per frame) call this,
though there are usually only a handful of entries in the table,
often just one. Is the slowdown linear with the number of entries,
or just an added constant overhead ?
