Accidentally posted in #bitcoin-dev instead of here, but I got some initial mempool optimizing code for fee estimation in place that looks promising. Will check back when I have more profiling done.
After seeing a bunch of complaints about fee estimation on Bitcoin Core I decided to do some profiling on how well the estimator is doing. My approach may be off, but it seems to be overshooting by a ton.

luke-jr: if bitcoin is as fickle as a default setting, the value of that setting isn't the issue...
luke-jr: what is the security model of a bitcoin with no nodes? But with the assumevalid approach I don't know that it's really a meaningful change in the security model.
morcos: yes, I think we shouldn't recommend things that harm Bitcoin.
luke-jr: I'm concerned that you seem to be fixated on size rather than on the greater goal of keeping bitcoin decenteralized, secure, usable. Size is increasingly not an interesting magic metric for that, moreover, single miners reducing their size does nothing to help here-- if it did there would be much less reason for a blocksize limit.
