How? We cache to avoid complex joins and queries.

Many queries. versus a single query.

A single for loop which just blanks out the fields you don't have the  
right to access, and a simple
form_alter to hide just the fields you aren't allowed to see.


an entire system to select only those fields, and caching alternate  
versions of the node based
on arbitrary parameters (roles is just one way to split it, a prime  
example is social networking, where
people in your friends list have more view access to your profile).
