No idea. We'd have to know how and when the engine handles garbage
collection. If you see significant speed differences in the different
methods, then my guess would be the engine making a working copy of
the array. But whether it marks the copy as not in use after that or
whether it remains in a cache is a mystery, at least until the FOSS
release of the engine code.
