I wouldn't worry about this. Each of my games have over 10,000 string
resources that I access in groups of 7 at a time and no one would notice that
they came from resources rather than from, say, edit fields or arrays; which,
incidentally, because of their lack of resources (although that IS changing),
is how I access them in my Windows Versions.
