Take your pick. But what I mean by efficient is to pack more information,
perhaps new characteristics, in the same space, react quicker to external
changes, be more daring in how genes are transfered and selected, and
probably lots more I don't know about. I realize the generally conservative 
approach in our bodies now is probably better, but what would happen if some the 
rules changed?
