I think it is a great idea !

Oggetto: [Mono-devel-list] [IDEA] Caching String Hashcodes

I thought about a pretty simple thing. As strings are immutable we are able
to cache their hashcodes. For (long) strings that make several calls to
GetHashCode this would give us an incredible perf boost. However it will
cost us 4 bytes of additional data per string even if the hashcode isn't
used at all.
Should I go for it or leave it as it is?
