These benchmark results look good, thank you!

The code doesn't look nearly as good to me (I think it could be
simpler), but there's no way for me to try to improve it other than by
writing it myself from scratch, so we'll have to live with yours (at
least for now, at least in jumbo). ;-)

Just one detail I am actually able to communicate to you easily: please
don't use nested functions.
