I have only glanced through the documentation patch and it looks like it
will be much less disruptive than the previous attempts. Now the obvious
question is how does this behave on a moderately or even busy system
when you compare that to a single threaded execution. Some numbers about
best/worst case execution would be really helpful.

I will look closer later.
