Now this isn't not exactly fair, is it? Those benchmarks should have
occurred before the patches got applied. You can't expect people to
accept there patches being rejected for some speed loss, while others
got committed without benchmarking.

Besides that, in my opinion you can't benchmark code on one particular
machine and expect a 0.5% performance loss to say anything about the
codes performance on other machines (other then that the code hasn't
introduced a substantial performance change on similar machines).

With friendly regards,
