Hmmm… very strange!  Must have commented those out at some point to allow a “fair” comparison with implementations of Scheme that don’t support f64vectors.

I see that the r7rs-benchmarks do the same, which is unfortunate because they will measure code with lots of uninteresting boxing/unboxing.  I think lots of Scheme implementations support f64vectors nowadays.
