If the performance difference is just 11%, it sounds like it's best to
keep the instances combined.  (I'm assuming both versions were
carefully written for speed - seems like a safe assumption given the
author!)  The speed difference is likely to continue as the speed
difference between processors,memory,etc. and disks,system
calls,etc. continues to grow.
