David didn't say that - *you are now saying that*. When you retort 
something that wasn't actually said, you create fuzzy conversation. 
David has been lucid here, lets not introduce fuzz.

Drupal is never going to run poorly for stock web hosts. Noone here 
wants that, or would tolerate it. Lets not discuss that strawman.

Please do - that would be helpful.

I have no objections to David's post. It makes sense to me. As usual, it 
needs be confirmed with a patch and benchmarks.
