        My personal opinion here is that you should not worry about exposing
hints at the internal structure.
        I don't think we need to go out of our way to hide the structure of
the internal data. It is the users problem, if they abuse this
data. If they hack this and it breaks in the future it will be a
good lesson for them.
        Maybe I am being a bit extreme?
