Hey, FYI I made a slight mistake in the code on my blog. I've fixed it and rerun the benchmarks on MRI 2.1 without any significant change.

I was initializing the PointStruct incorrectly, accidentally setting point_struct.x == {x: 100, y: 200}. The fix is to replace PointStruct.new(data) with something like PointStruct.new(100,200).

Sorry!
