Thanks.  Part 1 looks, on the whole, fine to me, although I think the
changes to use less whitespace and removing decimal places in the
documentation are going in the wrong direction.  That is:

-      About 67% of values are drawn from the middle <literal>1.0 / threshold</>
+      About 67% of values are drawn from the middle <literal>1/param</>,

I would say 1.0 / param, just as we used to say 1.0 / threshold.  Any
reason why not?  That's easier to read IMHO and makes it more clear
that it's integer division.

I'm copying Tomas Vondra on this email since he was the one who kicked
off the other thread where this was previously being discussed.
