Yeah, that's a good idea. Walter had suggested doing something like that 
before also (for an article) but life has been a bit hectic recently :)

Slices help tremendously, but there's other techniques involved also: 
per-thread data, preallocated buffers, loads of caching, and so on. The 
design works well for a certain type of workload, but is not ideal for all.

I agree. Much easier to do this kind of thing in D
