I don't think you're disagreeing. I didn't mean anything other than that
these two particular compilers have a very particular implementation
strategy in common which might affect the results, and it would be worth
seeing what kind of results are available with other implementations. I
certainly don't think the results with MSVC are insignificant.
[FWIW - some other gcc builds don't pay this penalty, though many do]
