[tor-relays] Status of NumCPUs >2 in 0.2.3.x?

In the Tor v0.2.2.x series it was said that it was pointless to set 
NumCPUs to a value greater than 2.  Due to poor scaling, I guess.

Is that still the case with v0.2.3.24+ ?  Would NumCPUs value of 4 or 8 
(on systems with that many CPU cores) actually provide any benefit over 
a value of 2?
