Until an array program beats SF, the answer is "no".
The measure of an approach is the measure in total.
Not perft.
Not eval.
Not anything else.
It is "How does this paradigm perform in the real world, end to end?"
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.
