Oof, you have a long memory. Oleg does reference such a thing in his 2002 post
that ended up resulting in the TODO item. I can't find the original patch but
I doubt any patch against 7.1 is going to be all that helpful in understanding
what to do today.

I'm also confused how he only saw a factor of 6 improvement in reading the top
100 out of a million. I would expect much better.
