OK - took the time to time it. (using Mono .30 on Windows)
Here are the results:
Direct return: 28621
Indirect : 29061
Second try (Testcode modified to leave on another branch):
Direct return: 28601
Indirect : 29022
The results are probably correct to +/- 20ms
Interrestingly on MS.Net the speed seems equal within the +/- 20ms
So my assumptions seem to be right.
The immediate return seems faster (although the difference obviously isn't
