While we are talking ets... I'm looking at an app which needs to store big
chunks of data for a short period before forwarding them on. There is a
choice between some tuple list structure to keep track of several of these
blobs and dig them out when they need to be sent, or ets.

Ets involves data copying so is non optimal. Lookup within a keyed tuple
list is slow for many entries.

What I need is hashed lookup without data copying of 'tuple lists'..
