I definitely notice WebPositive consuming a large amount of CPU and
bogging down the system, and while we should certainly improve the
scheduler, WebPositive also needs a lot of improvement so that it can
run more efficiently and quickly. Some of that will hopefully come in
the next months due to Alexandre's contract (not to put undo pressure
on him :P ). As one example Web+ does no caching, due to some problems
in that area which were causing crashes for Stephan back when he was
working on it. So given that it is amazing Web+ isn't even slower.

As for your work Julian, while I can admire your interest in fixing
more scheduler problems, it might be good to finish up and provide you
current patch if you really think it won't fix the other problems you
have seen. Or even if further work on that patch would fix those
problems, incremental improvements to an already committed patch will
be easier for everyone (us and yourself.)
