Since this topic is philosophical to begin with, "What does a FS box do when
idle, and if a tree fell in the woods while a FS box was in a nearby cabin

Another philosophical question would be, If a mailing-list thread persisted
for more than 6 hours would it take more or less time to just change the
code to make people stop complaining about free software  than it does to
politely not concern one's self with the issue.  I chose the first option,
you can update to trunk now and probably see your precious 0.0% so you can
get absolutely no use from your computer.  As a side note, my change
effectively proves  that the performance of pthread's mutexing and
conditional broadcast implementation has gone downhill since the version on
