I'd really like to get craigb-perf in an easier-to-implement condition.  I
just reverted from 2.5.7 *back* to 2.5.6 because I tried the craigb-perf
patches and they made an INCREDIBLE difference in performance, and I
couldn't get the patches to work right on 2.5.7.

My biggest performance beef is usually in conditions with very large volumes
but very little changed, and the craigb-perf patch made a really huge
difference with that, especially on older hardware.

Alternately, if somebody could update the .diff so that it worked against
2.5.7 (or 2.5.8 / 2.6.0, when it comes out) source, that would be enough to
shut me up for the time being. =)
