Oh absolutely. My issue with the benchmark is just that it
claims to be a JSON parser benchmark but the bulk of CPU time

Well, most of such language-comparison benchmarks are just for
fun/marketing. In the real world big JSON files would be
compressed and most likely retrieved over a network connection
(like a blob from a database). Pull-parsing of mmap'ed memory is
a rather unusual scenario for JSON.
