Eww, yuck. :)

More technically, that is not the best way to go if you care about 
performance or security.

        Performance -- Why should I bother to intern a string if it's an 
int?  Cf, http://www2006.org/programme/item.php?id=5011

        Security -- why should I let a bad-guy send me millions of bytes 
just to parse the number 23, unless I like DoS attacks?  (Of course, a 
really secure solution would have the schema beforehand, but that might 
not always be possible.)
