You're calculating the improvement incorrectly.  In the last case, it's
not 96%, rather it's 2400% (25x).  Similarly the second case is about
900% faster.

You are right,
my %improvement was intended to be like
1) base takes 100 sec ==> patch takes 93 sec
2) base takes 100 sec ==> patch takes 11 sec
3) base takes 100 sec ==> patch takes 4 sec

The above is more confusing (and incorrect!).

Better is what you told which boils to 10x and 25x improvement in case
2 and case 3. And IMO, this *really* gives the feeling of magnitude of
improvement with patches.

I ll change script to report that way :).
