    Actually I wasn't saying that for some workloads mainline will be better. What
    I was saying was there will be some bizarre scenarios where the intrinsic
    unfairness in mainline towards certain interactive tasks will make them
    appear to run better. After fiddling with scheduler code for the last few
    years I've come to believe that that may _appear to look better_, but is
    worse since that behaviour can be exploited and leads to scheduling delays

    Great thanks!. I've appreciated all the feedback so far.
