No inside info, other than discussions with Scott Raney on other issues
which suggest he's very good with hashes and likes them a lot.
In this case it was just a guess based on the blazing speed of array
access relative to any other lookup method. I had occassion this summer
and last to do some extensive benchmarking on various lookup methods,
and have always found that if I can use an array I can speed things up
by several orders of magnitude.
