He did the hard part of recompiling the distro, and he probably wanted
to get that released to users as soon as possible.

There's no need to be a prick in public.

He's not the only one that believes compiler optimizations have an
effect at runtime (if he was, Gentoo wouldn't exist).

Now that he's done the hard part of rebuilding the distro, and is
providing it to everyone at his cost, hopefully users of his packages
will submit quantitative and qualitative benchmarks of their favorite
components.

Then again, his RFC was to the attention of "Linux Naysayers", so I
guess he was expecting and inviting the response of rude and
inconsiderate folks like yourself.
