I'll post some numbers after trying it. But its pretty frightening to think 
that one release has such major changes. Sounds like (yet another) 
crapshoot. I'd have hoped that 5.whatever would be better than 4.anything 
simply as a matter of course. But 4.9 is slower than 4.7 and I can't
help but worry that its just all downhill from here on. To think that its 
18 months to get to be more than twice as slow as what was before is 
pretty discouraging. Nor can I have even the slightest bit of confidence that
something so different than the previous release is going to be as "stable"
as everyone seems to be claiming.
