Reasonable programming languages let you define your own
representations while allowing higher-level operations to be oblivious to
that representation. This allows you to change representation based on
tuning data and architectural considerations on each installation.
To get full value out of this idea, you should be able to specify the
representation on a variable-by-variable basis. After all, there's no
reason that one string variable is used the same way as another.
