We finally got around to this and the var is now as fast as variant in benchmarks.

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.

The bigger takeaway is that variant is frequently as fast as double. Not always; depends on C++ optimizations, right now. When it's not as fast as double, it's still pretty fast.
