Speed of get line from field vs. get line from global

   Is it quicker to pull a line out of a field, or pull it out of a 
global variable (whose contents are equal to the field)?  On one hand, 
there is possibly an extra layer of indirection, but on the other hand, 
Rev loads entire stacks into memory, so a field might just be just like 
a variable to the engine.
