I am extremely worried as well.  I know that's not easy, but changes like
this never should be applied  without a decent amount of performance
testing.

Before someone approves/installs this patch, would you mind sending me
an updated version, Doug, so that I can perform experiments using real-
world code?

(If you prefer, I can also provide that code and the benchmark suite
privately; both are easy to use and portable and that might make a lot
of sense.)
