1) As far as i know, data from ets'es is copied from ets to process
heap every time it is accessed. Are ets'es with private flag optimized
- do VM still copy data back and forth?

2) How data saved with set() behaves when accessed with get() ? Does
it need copying?

If there is any difference: in my case i'm talking about quite large
lists of integers (not bigints).
