Sure enough, the benchmark results you are reporting look great. But you are not saying at all how they were obtained. And it seems from you own admission that some of the program versions were "hand-compiled", whatever this means. Sorry, too sketchy to be convincing. Your idea might be great, and I would like to believe in it, but so far, I wish you have convinced me.
