Who told you that? I wrote the thing, and it is about as bad of a 
general benchmark scene as you can design...it would only be useful if 
you're specifically measuring the speed of photons in media. The 
optics.pov demo scene has two purposes: to demonstrate a working scene 
using photons in scattering media, and to look pretty. It is "accepted 
by the POV-Ray community"...as a demo scene. The accepted benchmark 
scene is, surprisingly enough, benchmark.pov, which is in the same 
folder as optics.pov.
