It was not the intention to publish something like that.

The library we developed has another approach than most libraries being
out there. It is a library like the std:: library and the boost::
libraries are. It is header only, users can use the pieces they are
interested in, either a very small part such as just the distance
between two points, or a larger part such as a simplify operation on a
std::vector of points. This is the "header-only", generic approach with
"static polymorphism".
One reason to use that approach is the performance gain you get (more by
approach than by the specific implementation) and that was the purpose
of those graphs.

Right, I've changed the page, leaving out the benchmark, thanks.
