Currently relations are loaded by a two pass process, this is unnecesary since the compressed token vector structures used grow dynamically. Experience has shown however that the performance affects of a purely dynamic approach in the loading process are considerable, due to all the bit copying and successive memory alocation that is required, thus a two pass loading process has been employed.
