Recursiveness test is also included in shootout.debian. It means a lot, 
particulary to low-level programmers.

I'm sorry that I couldn't manage to get that one working. He says:
Uncaught exception - load.c(167) : Module not found : hello.neko

Slowest time being considered to be the best, it is given 100%. So let width 
of bar image be 100.
The following equation determines the width of any value, knowing the min 
which is the "best": val(f) = (f*rate) / (f/min)²   where rate = 100/min
Thus produces 100 for the min. CQFD. This is how width of HTML image is 
calculated after having sorted the values.
