Hi,

I'd hate to sound like a party-pooper but I'm very much inclined to say
that this endeavour is not a very fruitful one.

Arch essentially just packages upstream. It's quite likely any
performance gains you see are simply factors mainly a newer kernel and
more up-to-date packages.

That said, I'll happily entertain the idea that Arch is somehow a
performance distro.
