Yes, I agree, given these benchmarks, we should focus on

  a) Usability in C
  b) Simplicity
  c) Extensability/probability of backwards incompatability from future CEPs

But even for these criteria, I don't really have an opinion about table 
vs. getfuncptr, or intern vs. strcmp. Where do others put their +1's?
