I still don't see where you draw such a conclusion.  In the pdb code,
the multiple backends case just fell out of the design - it cost us very
little indeed.  The same applies to the new SAM stuff, it didn't impose
a significant design penelty, but was catered for.  (In the case of the
SAM, each domain must have only one backend however).
