The patch isn't binary compatible. We can't remove data members
in a minor release. We could only do it in a major release.

I'm still curious about the performance, though. It doesn't make
sense to me that a call to a virtual function is faster than one
to an almost trivial inline function.

Let me see if I can build the library on Solaris and put together
some numbers. I hope to have some time this weekend.
