Nested CPR patch review

What are the nofib results?

Can we have a couple of artificial benchmarks in cpranal/should_run that show substantial perf improvements because the nested CPR wins in some inner loop?

Is still an accurate summary of the idea?   And the Akio2017 sub-page?  It would be easier to review the code if the design documentation accurately described it.

I'll look in the new year.  Thanks!

|  Subject: Nested CPR patch review
|  Hi all,
|  I recently resurrected akio's nested cpr branch and put it on phabricator
|  for review.
|  Sebastian has kindly been going over it and ironed out a few kinks in the
|  last few days. He says now that he believes the patch is correct.
|  Is there anything else which needs to be done before merging this patch?
|  Simon, would you perhaps be able to give the patch a look over?
|  Cheers,
|  Matt
