type down and population on large servers (news.mcom.com and news.supernews.com) is really bad, not even usuable.
it's usable with news.mozilla.org, and autosubscribe works, so this isn't a dogfood blocker. but it is bad for nsbeta2

checked in one thing, using HasAssertion() and GetTarget() to make population faster. I'm thinking that I might need to move away from the in memory datasource to really get the performance. it works well for small servers, but news.mcom.com or news.supernews.com is pretty bad. building up the entire datasource is killing me, but if I had my own, I could do things lazily. the alternative would be to use the in memory datasource, and only assert children when I need to, based on what the users clicks or what the user types in type down.
Putting on [nsbeta2-] radar.
How bad is this really?
We have another typedown bug somewhere that is nominated for nsbeta3. I have to find it.
