This keeps coming up. I am seeing the words "seems", "would", "some",  
"guess", "scenario", "brokeback mountain". I rather see numbers  
supporting the cause. So far, other things prove to be a bottleneck.  
I'd like to see a real app that would benefit from this. I'm not  
saying there is none, I'd just like to see it :)
