Hmm, then maybe I was confused because of load/read time itself. I tried some > 700
file directory on our network. Now it seems to me that 'foreach loop is only a
fraction of total dir load time .... thanks a lot ...

(deep copied objects, non shared sub-objects) becoming mezzanine level functions default
for everybody ...
