For those who run clusters and also have busy public interfaces, this RFE is a real step forward in ce performance, even though it has been a while in the brewing. Fixed in patches including 118778-11, but there are patches for S9 and x86 as well of course. Patch has been out for over a month now.
Some fiddling around in ce.conf will be require so only the private interfaces have ce_taskq_disable set in addition to applying the patch. If you run a system with cluster and your networks are busy, this is a patch you need to understand if you will gain from apply it. The blueprint is well worth reading to understand what the various tunables for CE do.
