Subject Re: Performance tuning documentation

Hi folks.

I've taken a first, awkward stab at the performance documentation.

That's basically what I've attempted to do.
I've thrown out everything that's older than a decade, or otherwise
obsolete, or just confusing.

Unfortunately, I have never attended any of those talks...
I did however borrow a line from from colmmacc's blog:

This patch is not trying to be complete -- or accurate in its spelling,
for that matter.
It's just supposed to throw away the crusty old bits, which in turn I
hope will get people motivated enough to start doing something about it.
