No, it didn't. The hypothesis was that the *parser* has a little easier 
time with non-interpolated strings, and the benchmarks didn't test that. 
They had N.times { "blah blah" } when they should have had N.times { 
eval '"blah blah"' }.

That said, it's hardly a reason to go for single quotes. I mean, the 
quintessence of premature optimization dude. /That/ said, I think the 
singles make less line noise.
