how would these fast strings behave as table keys?  i'm guessing it'll be 
similar to already-interned strings, am i right?

a related question: on a fetch like table.key, is the 'key' string interned at 
compile time, or runtime?  what about table.["key"]? (with "key" a constant 
string).  in Xavante there are several of these queries, and i'd like to know 
if there's a performance advantage in either one.
