The point is that I use this data in my work. Whether you wish to use
it is up to you.

Some folks have actually made use of this code, e.g. Cray used it to
tune the OS that runs on the 20K CPU XT4.

Yeah, the code seems simple and stupid, but there are a few subtleties
in there, and it may surprise you (it sure surprised me) that this
code is the first code I know of that got those subtleties right. It
was a lot of work and most of it fell on The Math Dude (not me!) to
make sure it was right.

now go write those drivers, and watch yourself if Ken shows up.
