Heh thanks, yeah...initially I was erring on the side of caution and using
9.9.x because it's served us well (~20k recursive clients without any
significant problems).  Meanwhile we've been keeping a close eye on
community comments, and to be honest opinions wax and wane.  Just as I
think it's stabilized, someone else complains.  I suppose sticking to
9.9.x a bit longer is wise.

That said, based on the 9.10.1 fixes, we will run it through our own perf
tests for comparison.  Upgrades are automated and easy, but I'd obviously
like to go live with the latest version unless there is a strong technical
reason otherwise.
