comment How can I draw bars and stars faster?
it is funny that as I don't dispose of the convenience of creating nodes at given locations in the context of pure TeX handling of tokens, my first concern was to generate efficiently the bars and stars and that the triplets (x,y,z) were thus a king a secondary thing, whereas in your approach it is the exact opposite.
