I would say "don't worry about it unless you have some personal motivation
to want to bother". While trending data is interesting, it isn't critical
and a year will eventually pass anyway. =)

That's an open question. Until the libraries the benchmarks get ported
officially then it's up in the air when the pre-existing benchmarks can
move. We might have to look at pulling in a new set to start and then add
back in the old ones (possibly) as they get ported.

Beats me, but I appreciate everything being done!
