What do you mean, "unusable"? 10% slower? Well, Python 3.x is already
unusable (compared to 2.x) by that metric... Until now, only Skip has
reported a slowdown on his PPC machine, while x86 systems have all seen
a positive (if tiny, sometimes) improvement.

I fear that with a configure option, disabled by default, the code will
get very poor testing and perhaps get broken in some subtle way without
anyone noticing.
