I know. I just think that the memory tradeoff is significant enough to
pay this cost in terms of concept. As I've said before I'm still able
to isolate groups of views opening new surf processes as roots of
these groups. As I see it new views opened from inside (i.e. from url
links, in the lapse of a short-lived exploration session from some
given root) reside in the same process (and usually in the same tabbed
parent window). That's as far as I would go with this.
