   For OGR, the client picks core #0 (GARSP 5.13-A) on my P4 1.4. This
does 3.1Mnodes/s in real life (99% CPU) and the "selected core"
benchmark reports 4.7Mnodes/s. I have a Celeron 733Mhz box,
outperforming a P4 1.4. (The P4 box was a warranty replacement for an
Athalon 1.1 box which beat both hands down.)

Aside: If only there was an AS/400 client, *then* I could get a better
key-rate ;) - I only have an RPG compiler on my box so I can't help
with the development of a client :(
