You're probably not going to see wins on the socket data, since that  
directory is probably very well cached and doesn't get any/many  
writes.  imap/log will only give you a win if you're doing any  
debugging logging for someone, which I hope you're not doing very  
often as it is.

I think that proc is probably the biggest win, since it's quite write-
