Agreed, but Rob somehow presented a challenge when he said:

"The purpose of this exercise is to compare the code and performance,
so they must all perform the same task."

This implies that there's a code to compare to and benchmark
against. Also, it's rather frustrating to see posted benchmarks
without being able to really test them and scrutinize the code for
possible errors, etc.
