Indeed, it could also provide prressure for improvement in the
various slow VMs if it did not already exist. I got this:

        136886 keys/sec

These results from a ppro 233, nt4, nsc4.01, running as a light
weight disk server, pproxy server for rc5, internal web service,
etc. 'Normal' perf for the rc5 w32gui is ~500K.
