Well, I'm certainly not about to do the comparison myself.  I only
have so much time, and presently I am not sufficiently motivated about
this topic to invest any time in it.  A suggestion:  *you* brought up

*you* had better be prepared to get your hands dirty and do the actual
work to support it.
