You don't have to. And I can only conclude that your sometimes overactive
imagination made you think that. And that has nothing whatsoever to do with the
issues discussed. The issue IMO is would any one of the programs would benefit
from a different data representation. And what will happen on a 64 bit machine.
Not some veak claim of: Since these two programs are of similar strength. I
therefore conlude I am right. Weak logic. Handvaving and apples and oranges is
what I read. Not that I believe that you are wrong. But the fact is that you
make a claim and when you are asked to back it up. You resort to very shaky
lines of reasoning.
