the median of median of 5 is quite significantly slower than a quickselect.
numpy implements an introselect which uses quickselect but falls back to median of median of 5 if not enough progress is done.
In the numpy implementation for 100000 element median (multiselect with 2 selections, one median one min) quickselect is around 3 times faster than mom5
