Yes, 2.1.x (at least in my limited testing) is solidly ~20% faster than my 
2.0.x production server.  But 2.1.x is a *DEVELOPMENT* version;  which 
means "Here is a gun, close your eyes, point down, pull trigger.  You may 
hit your foot, but then you may not."

IMHO:  more RAM is alot cheaper than 200 pissed off users.  We'll "limp" 
by until 2.2.x on the production boxes.
