    Wow, I'm surprised. I suppose I do jump to thinking of heavy swapping
    when light swapping won't be so bad; but even so, 20x ext3 astonishes
    me - ext3 wouldn't be anyone's choice for fastest, but even so...

    I certainly guess too much and measure too little:
    is there a useful test you could point me to? TIA
