Frankly, I don't know for sure!  The downside of Michi's slowness is
that playtesting takes too many resources so configuration performance
exploration is awkward.

But my guess based on ad hoc tests during the development is that the
contribution of basic playout heuristics and RAVE+priors may be about
1:1 (with large pattern priors giving further extra boost).
