Indeed, I think most of the 2.3 speedups came fairly early on in its
development time, more than a year ago.  I don't suppose you have the
data for 2002?


  In general, I'd recommend injecting LSD directly into your temples,
  Syd-Barret-style, before mucking with Motif's resource framework.
  The former has far lower odds of leading directly to terminal
  insanity.                                            -- Dan Martinez
