since i'm 99% sure that mitch wrote that page, let me be the
first to disagree.  :-)

i believe that everything he's said is completely spot on.  i
confess i wasn't conscious of the partition vs. erase block
alignment issue until a couple of months ago when i first heard
mitch mention it, but i'm absolutely sure the effect is real.
