Does it cost a lot of time to traverse the nested scopes to access every EObjectDescriptions?

I want to support function overloading. My way is to get the scope calculated by the method "getScope" of "DefaultLinkingService". And then, try to match the parameters' type and the formals' type. The formals can be getten by accessing the method object's EObjectDescription in the scope.

So I have to go through the nested scope before "getSingleElement" is called by the "getLinkedObjects".

I found it is inefficient.

Who can help me on this problem?

my idea of supporting overloading of function
public List<EObject> getLinkedObjects(EObject context, EReference ref,
INode node) throws IllegalNodeException {

final String crossRefString = getCrossRefNodeAsString(node);
IScope potentialScope = getScope(context, ref);
potentialScope = getOverloadedFScope(potentialScope,node);
//I will go through the scope "potentialScope" here
final IScope scope = potentialScope;
IEObjectDescription description = scope.getSingleElement(qualifiedLinkName);
