Just wrote a blog post explaining some of that.


Almost 2 years in the making (well, that also includes one year of just 
thinking about it idly with no code), I'm glad I've finally got this one 
off my shoulder. :-)

But no doubt more work is ahead to further optimize this structure.

Also, ScMatrix's new backend now uses it.  My hope is to use ScMatrix as 
a test-drive and try to get all its kinks sorted out before using this 
to store cells in ScColumn.
