Fwiw I had put together a jumbo patch for three of the patches which you were
interested in, HOT, LDC, and GII. This was specifically for the benefit of
users like you to get an early experience of these patches. I think it was
actually shortly after you had reported a problem running them together which
was blocking you from running benchmarks on them.
The problem I ran into was that by the time I had them all wrapped up major
new commits to the CVS tree made it uninteresting to benchmark the snapshot I
had. Also I think a new version of HOT had been posted.
