You don't have to wait long.  I was thinking about sending a patch out

And I don't believe it has to be a choice.  There is little reason
against merging both - apart from any problems found in the review.

Also, competition is a good thing.  There's nothing like a flurry of
patches following an unfavorable benchmark for one side or the other. ;)

Fancy algorithms have big constants. Until you know that n is
frequently going to be big, don't get fancy.
