| I and probably others would like to try this. Would it be possible for

| Linux-illiterate (ie me).

I've found that I can squeeze a few KKeys/sec out simply by killing my X
Server.  This drops all those little applications on wharf and the like out
of the picture.  I go from 1.41MKeys/sec to 1.44MKeys/sec.
