Hi again, (replying to self ... hmm :) )
well, anyway, status update: we've further developed
our prototype a bit, experimented a bit with various
scheduler bind settings and also a bit with erlang
process communication patterns, and now it seems that
the performance of R15A for our protoype is well on par
with R14B04. We can no longer say that R15 is slower.
(We haven't tracked down exactly why we earlier saw R15
to be slower, but we don't see it anymore.)
