Subject: fwd: a note from hurikon about performance

These guys never leave me alone.  They are interested in moving product
and doing some dealing.  So I thought I'd mention it to the rest of the
EPICS community.  I am not interested in endorsing (or supporting) this
stuff as the APS will (presumably) take a little while before it goes thru 
a hardware upgrade.  And by then many of you will be giving us advice as to
what boards and BSPs to use.

I honestly doubt any numbers like the one quoted below are at all meaningful 
to those of us that are interested in doing any I/O.  Many board vendors are 
clueless as to how software is designed and used.  And others that build
message-based devices are (I suspect) living in the land of the TRS-80.
