The old-style iterators should be replaced by the faster new-style iterators.

More speed and less iterators -- once everything is ported, we can remove the old code.

No, that would be too drastic. And since it's a refactoring, it's not a good idea to do it in the branch either, since it will make merging harder. It's something to do at the beginning of the next iteration, soon after trunk opens.
