Given that
def foo(): int; str; bytes; float; int; str; bytes; float
can be trivially be rewritten as
def foo(): pass
I think that benchmark is meaningless.

I really don't think we should be making claims like "40% speedup" for such contrived examples.

It looks like the speedup is real, but only about 2% speedup overall.
The "what's new" should reflect that, IMO.
