Thank you for the detailed information. One clarification: are time
constraints and associated non-determinism limited to definite integration
in the current implementation or is there an example from indefinite

Interesting. On my system (Mathematica 8.0.4), this does not make a
significant timing difference but does appear to achieve the desired
