Ha ha.  We really aren't on the same wavelength, are we?  You state that "trunk is the worst possible process" because it  has negative characteristics a,b,c,d,e,f,g.  It goes without saying that you believe that your process does not share these characteristics.  Simple logic dictates that if trunk is the worst then yours is better, and if therefore you insist that trunk is the worst, then you are also insisting that yours is better.  

Are we having an honest disagreement about the meaning of "insist"?  Maybe my bastardized Canadian tongue falls as gibberish upon your ear, eh?
