Hi Andrej,

you're right, I found the most interesting email from you now (reading
the whole thread) :
 - http://lists.jboss.org/pipermail/hibernate-dev/2012-May/008410.html

I'm not sure why the discussion stopped, I'm sorry.
Let's try to fix it this time, to make sure of that we need a JIRA.
Someone created one? Guillaume?

 - problem introduced by https://hibernate.atlassian.net/browse/HHH-4546
 - great results applying Andrej's
 - the patch could be improved today with Java8
   -- I'd like to have some degree of upfront validation at boostrap still
   -- hopefully explore an array based structure
   -- do not extend CHM
   -- ideally have no read barriers at all at runtime
