I'm sorry, that sentence is completely incoherent.

I meant to say that I understand John Rose's point about not wanting to
increase the footprint of fibers, but the cost of searching the stack
is not going to be pleasant. I don't believe that the cost of maintaining
a little fiber-local state to facilitate fast lookups is necessarily
worth avoiding. Oh no, I'm kibitzing again, so I'll stop there!
