Your original reason for the shared map seems to be the cost of
copying. If the map was based on a vector instead of a tree (and
didn't share nodes at all) do you think that might solve your slow
copy problems?

I worked on a project where we found that copying of maps was one of
the major bottle-necks, so we converted most of them to sorted
vectors, and that fixed it.

We didn't need the sorted vectors to have all the same behaviour as
maps, but I've had a plan for vector-based maps sitting on the
back-burner for a while now. Might be something to consider.
