This is really excellent, thanks.  Is there any chance we can make
these and other benchmarks part of the pre-release testing?  Apart
from testing for bottlenecks, if we could show that we were in the
ballpark of matlab for speed for each release, this would be very
helpful for those us trying to persuade our matlab colleagues to
switch.

Best,

Matthew
