Really? I was under the impression that object creation (plus the extra GC
work that it will cause later on) is one of the slowest things a VM can do,
even for HotSpot. I could imagine that it might be slower than accessing a
linked list using an index, but I didn't think that it was "pretty low"
overhead, I thought it was just the opposite.
