That would be really interesting. If you want to have a look:

On my system I cannot see anything the like. Look at the execution time.
Ok, I must admit: I do not use brain-dead K stuff (warning: this is a very
personal opinion, don't flame me here :-).

What does your setup look like? Have you ever tested without K?
