I don't think he needs to. He just claims it's faster; whether it's
fast enough to make a practical difference doesn't invalidate his
claims in any way. That 100.0001 > 100 (arbitrarily chosen numbers) is
a fact; whether 0.0001 is significant in your situation is not

Emphasis on *your situation*. Everybody has wildly different
