Changing benchmarks is *never* a good idea. Note that we have quite
some history of those benchmarks running on pypy and I would strongly
object changing them in any way. Adding python 3 versions next to them
is much better. Also porting runner etc. is not a very good idea I
The problem really is that most of interesting benchmarks don't work
on python 3, only the uninteresting ones. What we gonna do about that?
PS. I pulled your changes
