  In general this makes sense, this makes for smaller structure (no
next link) iterations are done on a compact memory structure, and
this makes sorting way simpler thank to qsort, I guess it's beneficial.

  I remember though that realloc() can be really really slow on some
Windows [1] and as for the domain tables, it would be even nicer if
we could use some kind of generic API for the table iterations.

  Sounds fine, +1
