No objection of keeping it in the develop branch. But I think it is bad
practice to release a code which is not tested.

Sure they happen. Happen to everyone. Again, noone said your stupid, we
are just giving feedback about your work. As a side effect of our daily
work we happen to have gained some experience with the library you
propose and in addition think that performance should be an important
and critical feature of your library. That's all. No offense intended.
