Given that Alan Barrett points out the next release of the patch changes
this around so that there's only a single "normal" summary without a
separate "Max throughput" line (and blank line I'm hoping!), are you OK
with removing this great annoyance in the mean time?  And yes, I know
there's an opposite argument about leaving it as is until we add the
next patches, but I don't know the timeframe for that :-)
