That's interesting. I'd no idea that work was done. Actually, I didn't
really know that anyone had thought to have more than one processor
back then :-)

And I also now know the origins of the tenk1 table in the regression
database. Those 10,000 rows were once used for benchmarking! I'm glad
we're all using a couple more rows these days.
