Bikker said that? Are you thinking of this thread:
If so, it was mpeterson who claimed to have an order-of-magnitude faster
method, not Bikker. And mpeterson was very vague and not forthcoming about
Bikker said that his own method is about 20% faster than existing methods,
which is consistent with the results presented in the paper.
