Yes, I think the message from Robert that packs *enable* further
tuning improvements, rather than simply being faster in themselves, is
a better way for me to view it (apologies to Robert if I garbled what
he said).

I'll certainly keep an eye on things over the next few months - I'm
not in that much of a hurry to make a final decision.
