that would be great, as (pointer)s are an unknown variable. for now the
only way of sorting out a pointer from others is by some kind of
comparison test - i.e. going through all until one finds the right one.
sometimes adding extra variables just to have something to compare with.
that would be good not only to get the contents faster, but also to treat  
pointers as individual variables (which they are).

that would be great. but already improving traversing would make these
methods much easier to program in a patch. for example, adding vnext is
already a good help, but only for a specific kind of usage.

indeed. if you're the Varèse professorship in the TU Berlin works out (as
I heard some months ago), I would be glad to test that directly (and watch
the seminars)
