To convert external names, array indices, or references within
a data structure into address pointers when the data structure
is brought into main memory from external storage (also called
"pointer swizzling"); this may be done for speed in chasing
references or to simplify code (e.g. by turning lots of name
lookups into pointer dereferences). The converse operation is
sometimes termed "unswizzling".
