Sorry, but I don't believe in "may be" as an excuse for complexity.
Especially since the "may be" faster performance is often coupled with
"known latency problems due to unfairness".

I'd want numbers for real loads if we really want the extra complexity.

Right now, the real numbers I can point to is in the size of the
patch, and the extra code complexity. Yes, I see the microbenchmark
numbers, but those are pretty much irrelevant to real loads.
