Well, I tested all of them, both with the -benchmark option and with
actual key blocks, and when I use the 'true' Pentium code by giving a
specific type under -config, It's about 20k keys/sec faster! 246k vs 267k.
Overall, this Dual P200 classic is running a total of 540k keys/sec, so
I'm fairly well pleased :)
