While speed timings of the latest released version are interesting,
they don't help much with the process of improving the speed of the
current development version. It would be really great if you could
repeat your measurements with the current development version, or with
1.0.4 when out, to see what areas most need additional improvement so
we can focus on those. Unfortunately, we can only improve performance
of future releases, not past releases, so the most useful timings are
ones as close to the current code as possible.
