Remi Guyomarch wrote about his new v1 based x86 clients:
I ran them all just for comparison. These are all the pre-compiled,
simply downloaded versions. I have not re-worked the code at all.
Here're results from a 6x86/PR166+ running linux, X, and a mostly
idle apache web server:

Keep it up! You've just passed the v2 code!
Remi, you're going to make the team whether they invite you or not!
If you keep this up, I'm going to revert to v1 and pproxy.
