Interesting read.  The big unanswered question seems to be: how does
this affect the performance of a running application?  Does mozilla take
longer or shorter amounts of time to run once the application loads?  Do
smaller apps benefit less from the optimizations than larger ones?

Could dogtail be used to give predictable "user input" to GUI
applications or is the speed variable there as well?
