Now that's a thought ... if you run out of things to waste time on, would you
mind generating a VM with "MemoryAccess enable" and see if it goes faster or
slower? I truly have no idea what to expect, so we should place bets in advance.
I'm a "heads I win, tails you lose" sort of guy, so my bet is that that it will
go slower, and I get to go away happy with either outcome.
