Does she miss the fractional speeds, or just the 1x-4x range?

I just did some timing on my production system with the old code.  This is 
using a PVR-350 for output.

Indicated  Actual (approximate)
1x         1x
1.5x       1.7x
2x         3.3x
3x         5x
8x         10x
10x        12x
16x        26x

I've never used the fractional speeds, and don't find <3x (actual) useful 
at all.  5x seems to be where it feels like ff/rw, and I find myself using 
10x or 12x to skip ahead for most things.

What do other people use?
