	It strikes me that someone who is good at that sort of thing,
	should be given every encouragement & help (As David manages the
	SparcLinux port I doubt that is relevant in his case :)

	Though I agree targetting the biggest problems is obviously the
	right tactic, any saving are good - shaving system call setup is
	particularly nice - it helps everyone a little :)
