I've been wanting to do this for years. Just a quick announcement that Stem
now lazy-loads descriptors, giving it a nice performance boost...
Server descriptors: 27% faster
Extrainfo descriptors: 71% faster
Microdescriptors: 43% faster
Consensus: 37% faster
For details see...
Note that descriptor validation is now opt-in rather than opt-out, so if
you'd prefer validation over performance you'll now need to include
'validate = True'.
This is a pretty big overhaul so please let me know if you run into any issues.
