please add a performance test that ensures that future refactorings won't
regress here. In general any patch claiming performance improvements should
be accompanied by a performance test to make sure that we can still
refactor the code without someone complaining that we introduced huge
performance regression.

Related to the code I wanted to mention that the getenv calls should be
cached in a static variable as they might become expensive when called
repeatedly and that the new virtual method calls are not free so I would
like to see some before and after numbers for both the supposed 18x speedup
case and our normal matrix handling code.
