We might. But what does this actually get us? It helps clear Heroku's name, but it doesn't help our customers at all. I'd prefer to spend our time and energy making customer's lives better.

Given the choice between continuing the theoretical debate over routing algorithms vs working on real customer problems (like the H12 visibility problem mentioned elsewhere in this thread), I much prefer the latter.

I respect that mindset, I just don't think it would hurt. Maybe a middle ground would be a full-scale tutorial on how to switch from Thin on Bamboo/Cedar to Unicorn on Cedar for Rails users. It's a non-trivial process and I know I'd like some help with it. And in this same tutorial/article you could throw down the benchmarks you ran as motivation/justification.
