Sure, I've looked at the benchmarks. They compare Voronoi diagram
generation with CGAL. I'm interested in Delaunay triangulation
generation, for which s-hull is possibly the fastest existing
implementation. I'd like to see a comparison with that.

Fast is a relative term. The GPU in my phone can draw tens of millions
of triangles per second. Could this code supply triangles quickly
enough? Probably not. Faster is always better.
