Well I just sent some feedback on cfs-v2, but realised it went off-list,
so I'll resend here because others may find it interesting too. Sorry
about jamming it in here, but it is relevant to performance...

Anyway, roughly in the context of good cfs-v2 interactivity, I wrote:

Well I'm not too surprised. I am disappointed that it uses such small
timeslices (or whatever they are called) as the default.

Using small timeslices is actually a pretty easy way to ensure everything
stays smooth even under load, but is bad for efficiency. Sure you can say
you'll have desktop and server tunings, but... With nicksched I'm testing
a default timeslice of *300ms* even on the desktop, wheras Ingo's seems
to be effectively 3ms :P So if you compare default tunings, it isn't
exactly fair!
