This is correct.  I believe this was encapsulated in the "improved
script scheduling" item.

On the plus side, idle scripts are using less time now that CPUs are
faster, an idle script uses about 0.0015 ms per frame on class 5,
compared to 0.003ms on class 4.

This is still too much really, a few thousand scripts still cause
serious CPU contention.

This thread is sort of offtopic, we probably shouldn't let it grow too big.
