Just have a small question on the subject: has anyone performed any
library or application benchmarks to see how much this means in the
real world and not just for the threaded microbenchmarks that you
wrote? The non-threaded speedups are pretty impressive on their own,
but it'd be nice to see what we could expect from e.g. GStreamer with
these changes applied.
