  Well, yes, but more knobs make tuning more difficult.

  Perhaps some magic counters would be in order, so that one can
put the black art of tuning into a set of rules of thumb: "if
foocount is larger by an order of magnitude than barcount, you
need to raise execmin" or such? Of course that would also allow
to auto-tune the values in the long run.

  Now as to _what_ the counters should count... will the real
vm experts please stand up?
