yeah :) Well, we can always hope. But yes, given that before we didn't
even try to find everything by following imported/child DIEs, it will be
hard to get no slowdown at all indeed.

Yes, I approve. It simplifies the code, which obviously was doing too
much work. Faster and simpler, while not changing the actual logic
underlying the recursion sounds good to me.
