-`no-options` has the same features as Rubypants, while `all-options` has the same features as Typogruby. Rubypants is executed 10x less, and Typogruby is executed 100x less. These benchmarks indicate that Fast Aleck in its current state is about one order of magnitude faster than Rubypants, and about two orders of magnitude faster than Typogruby.
+Fast Aleck runs 5000 times, Rubypants 500 times and Typogruby 50 times (hence the x10 and x100 indicators).

No development time has been spent on optimising Fast Aleck yet, but this will hopefully happen Soon™.
