thanks for your input here Steve, i set this today on my primary 
workstation and have observed noticiably better performance of firefox 
as a result.  i'm going to also dog-food this on my lower powered laptop 
tonight.  i wonder if there is a good place to store this koan of 
knowledge, not sure it'd be appropriate for a pkg message but maybe in 
the tuning wiki?
