A reader's wrong assumptions are their own responsibility:

Perhaps rather than "innocent reader" you mean careless reader who didn't bother
to read what the programs should do?

http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/u32q/benchmark.php?test=binarytrees&lang=all#about

"binary-trees benchmark : Allocate and deallocate many many binary trees"

So do that comparison and publish the results.
