No, Bruce was saying that he wanted to see demonstrable improvement
*due to this specific change* before committing to support a
platform-specific API.  I agree with him, actually.  If you do the
TLB code and can't measure any meaningful performance improvement
when using it vs. when not, I'd not be excited about cluttering the
distribution with it.
