How's that speed even possible with the current formats interface and on
current CPUs?  "dummy" only achieves up to approx. 130M c/s on "--test"
(which is reported more like 130000K c/s, indeed).

Are you somehow skipping impossible keys, yet counting them?  Just a
guess.  But even in that case you'd need to hack code outside of the new
format definition in order for the speedup to be seen on benchmarks.
So this got me curious.

Thanks again,
