Re:  Efficient way to do an identity transform
So, how big is "big"?

My new home PC I bought in May has 32GB RAM.

It seems obvious that paying $2000 for a decent computer is so much
cheaper than paying programmers (myself included) to invent tricks ---
at least for this kind of problems.

<copy> statements. I need a very efficient implementation. Any suggestions?
