Faster, I don't know, but IMO, it's irrelevant. Safer, that's absolutely 
certain. But then you have the exact same problem with the subtree 
implemented approach : no atomicity, slow rename/move operations, even 
for normal entries, and no atomicity...

This is what bugs me : why should we apply a strategy for DN and the 
opposite one for subentries...
