Another happy prefetch user chiming in (sadly, without rigorous scientific
research -- my team of monkeys is too busy at the moment). In my case, I have
a gig of RAM, but I'm a pig when it comes to leaving applications open.

Testimonials may not meet the appropriate criteria for merging a patch; I
hope, though, that the aggregate value of these messages, in considering this
issue, is more than that of mere noise.
