I know the conventional wisdom is that SSI is slow because of
the malloc calls in bucket creation, but the problem might
be elsewhere.  I've tried adding in a free list of recycled
buckets, to reduce the calls to malloc, but it didn't seem to
affect performance measurably.  The bottleneck might instead
be centered on the other operations required for brigade
in SSI requests in 2.0, like splitting buckets and registering
pool cleanup functions.  Further profiling should be helpful
