Ah, but by saying "factor of two" instead of "2ms vs 1ms" we are playing
statistical games to make the difference seem big.
Sort of like how a certain chemical might "double" your risk of cancer
which in reality means from .0002% to .0004%.
Even if it were 20ms vs 1ms it still wouldn't be a big deal. I can
afford to wait 19ms longer if it means I can have the software to use vs
not having it or having it work correctly vs being buggy.
