And your problem is then that your worst-case execution time is almost
unbounded, at least as far as acceptable latency is concerned :)

As I said, I don't believe anybody's solved this problem yet without
either having infinite memory, or content-addressable memory.  Of
course, for many things it doesn't matter if you're very occationally
too late (say, a computer game, or an electricy meter.)  I wouldn't want
the same to be true of a power station or oil rig, though.
