I thought about it some more, and it appears that efficiency can't be the reason. I don't see why symbol tables even need to have any structs (as opposed to just bare pointers). Judging by the header you provided, the glob doesn't actually do much of anything, other that being a collection of pointers. So it was "Larry's idea" then, I guess :)
