it does have a kind of perverse logic. it's odd but that doesn't make it 

i have concerns about performance and concurrency but i'd need more time 
to think to see if they're real.

to be honest i'm very reluctant to commit any changes to the core 
functionality of ecs. i'd have to be very certain to make this type of 
commit without hearing what stephan thinks first.

so i guess at the moment i'm -0 (mainly on gut feeling)
(that is - i'm not going to commit it but i'm not going to veto it either.

i suggest that you continue with your experiment. ecs is a stable project 
and that means you're unlikely to have to pay a 'stupid tax' (the code's 
not likely to change under you).

if you hang around long enough, then stephan will probably take a look and 
give you the benefit of his wisdom. i might even post some more comments 
and questions when i've thought about it further.
