I'm concerned that the major improvement has come from additional
calls to schedule instead of from some basic improvements in algorithm.
Calls to schedule are not free and I'm not smart enough to see an
obvious way to add a rescehdule
into a loop that dumps all write data to buffers without damaging
thoughput. This seems like _another_ tunable parameter
start io-loop
do chunk
end loop
