BTW, do anyone tried to benchmark it? We'll plan to include this
extension, but it's good idea to know whether it boosts up the
performance or not before inclusion.
Note that I can't benchmark because unfortunatelly I noticed I didn't
have any EV67+ machine. HP testdrive is another choise, but that is
multi user access machine (so the result becomes uncertain).
