the first message was a follow up to other messages as a real
world application performance issue. As I stated

on every system, but to use an existing system and see how it goes.

I know this general process of 'yes this is the current status but
we have a bunch of fixes which will help you' very well.

I also can read between the lines of some postings, too.
