Here are those zipf-distributed benchmarks for PR 22904:

Ignoring differences of <5%, there are 33 cases that get slower, but 477 cases that got faster.

Here's a run for PR 22904:

It looks like the stringbench times get a bit worse on a few cases, but I would attribute that to the benchmarks having many "difficult" cases with a unique character at the end of the needle, such as:

    s="ABC"*33; ((s+"D")*500+s+"E").find(s+"E"),

which the status quo already handles as well as possible, whereas the PR best handles the case where some middle "cut" character is unique. Who knows how common these cases are.
