So, to prevent this from either ending up in a dead-end because of this, we need to first decide where the canonical set of Python VM benchmarks are going to live. I say hg.python.org/benchmarks http://hg.python.org/benchmarks for two reasons. One is that Antoine has already done work there to port some of the benchmarks so there is at least some there that are ready to be run under Python 3 (and the tooling is in place to create separate Python 2 and Python 3 benchmark suites). Two, this can be a test of having the various VM contributors work out of hg.python.org http://hg.python.org if we are ever going to break the stdlib out for shared development. At worst we can simply take the changes made at pypy/benchmarks that apply to just the unladen benchmarks that exists, and at best merge the two sets (manually) into one benchmark suite so PyPy doesn't lose anything for Python 2 measurements that they have written and CPython doesn't lose any of its Python 3 benchmarks that it has created.
How does that sound?
