You said the regular expression test was "most likely... the least
relevant test" in SunSpider.
You said implementors' choice to optimize regular expressions because
they were hot on SunSpider was "not what we want to encourage."
But maybe I misunderstood you. Do you think it was a good thing that
SunSpider encouraged optimization of regular expressions? If so, do
you think the same thing would have happened had SunSpider not used
summation in calculating its scores?
