I don't buy that. Your previous post shows that "historical" usage is
broken anyway. How does a range of 3 orders of magnitude count as a
"reasonable" for an "average" app? If you're seriously saying that a
backlog of 5 is comparable to a backlog of 1000, then I for one don't
take the argument seriously anymore.
That woudn't mean you're not 100% right, tho'.
