Just a thought: Matt doesn't say much about the conditions under which
the test was done.  For example, if the machine was freshly booted,
and the 21.2 test run was done before the 21.3 run, the 21.3 run would
be reading straight from the filesystem cache rather than having to go
to disk as the 21.2 run would have had to do.

Further: I've been using a build of 21.3 for a few weeks myself, and I
can't say I've noticed a dramatic reduction in startup times.
