Please note that I haven't debated the legitimacy of the problem
or that I didn't know about all of the legacy code that developers
have to deal with every day. That's why I said 'don't answer that'.

I just tried to explain that performance *will suffer* with this
design and there's no magic solution that solves this without a
redesign or rewrite of the legacy code.
