Probably not for tasks like compiling - unless you use something like
dmake, compilation is unlikely to benefit much from having more than
one processor. Also, while there probably will be a Warp or Merlin
SMP someday, I don't think IBM has announced it so far, so unless
you can afford to pop for Warp Server just to get the SMP kernel,
I'd go with the faster single processor machine, or wait until we get
a more definitive announcement from IBM.
