yes - the code is pretty reasonable, though probably more tuned towards
typical desktop/webhost-type applications.  there are affinity heuristics for
managing which core a proc will be run on, as well as for guiding memory 
allocation on numa machines.  (pretty soon, of course, all multi-socket
machines will be numa and need these issues handled...)
