Mike's was the '10X performance improvement' patch set.  True enough,
ISTR, it was a fairly massive package, even though it came in five
or so pieces, and Mike was resistant to putting it into our code
style.  (FirstBill *did* implement some of it, though.)  And when
we didn't humbly take the gift, it got blasted all over the place
that we were snobs and someone started a message-writing campaign
trying to get us to accept it.
