Rickard, you're exactly right.  I should have worded my question
differently.  I'm interested in any results anyone has using this new
feature, and that's exactly what you gave me, thanks.  In my case, I have
highly concurrent reads with _zero_ interrupting writes.  The writes are
always done in a sequential manner before the reads.  Also, I'm not only
doing reads in my tight loop, but it is the dominator in my profile.

It seems my app may benefit from this new feature.  I'll report back when I
get some time to try it.
