I don't think Don wanted to compare the JIT's. I think he wanted to
know which system would be faster for him, personally. If he's using
certain ImageEngineer filters a lot, then that's a good test.
Compiling is a good test if you're compiling a lot of big sources. Etc
A test which has "statistical" significance may in fact be
uninteresting in real life, because it may turn out that it mainly
tests code which is already "fast enough" on all tested systems
anyway. For example, compiler speed is not that interesting to me
since I only compile fairly small projects which already don't take
any significant time. So reducing this with say 50% from 4 seconds to
2 seconds would be mildly interesting - for me.
