[Mesa-dev] Path to optimize (moving from create/bind/delete paradgim to set only ?)

>>Why do you think it's faster to create and use a new state rather than search in the hash cache and reuse this? I was under the impression (this being a dx10 paradigm) even hw is quite optimized for this (that is, you just keep all the state objects on the hw somewhere and switch between them). 

I read Jerome's post as suggesting that there wasn't much actual re-use going on (so the savings from re-use might be outweighed by the overhead of creating re-useable state) but I don't think he explicitly said that. Jerome, can you clarify that ?
