I re-did my earlier benchmarks for PEP 580 and these are the results:
In general, the PEP 580 timings seem slightly better than vanilla
CPython, similar to what Mark got. I'm speculating that the speedup in
both cases comes from the removal of type checks and dispatching
depending on that, and instead using a single protocol that directly
does what needs to be done.
