Surely not by very much?  A "move" operation is rarely 
performance-critical, anyway.

How about defining an IMoveableSubobjects interface which Containers may 
choose to implement?  I mention this because the problem reminds me of 
Shane's implementation of  versionable subobjects in 


Seems like an "adaptable" way of dealing with the problem. *cough*

With the (simpler) 'setset_ids' solution, where would you define the 
subset_ids for a given move operation?
