Remember, the Orb acts to couple the sorceror's brain to the Great Sea.
Presumably it runs much faster than even a souped-up human brain and so
a slow language allows more precision and hence better spells.  I like to
think that it was possible to teleport before, but you couldn't allow any
memory leaks, and moving 10**30 atoms exposes any missing deletes...
