So that justifies a 60% speed reduction in a previously available feature?

3% in the grand scheme of things is almost irrelevant, a 240% speed increase on
the other hand isn't.

The explanation for removing this feature was that it was of "questionable
utility". Clearly, the extent of that assessment was rather short sighted and
unaware that, actually it is a very useful feature for projects such as MythTV
and for algorithms such as pattern detection in a video stream (such as used to
detect commercials)

With Janne a member of your team and a MythTV developer (albeit silent) I would
have thought you actually cared about such things.

For what it's worth, your maths are wrong :)
