I suppose it isn't intrinsically.  The point is that as far as I know
all our previous pypy benchmarks did not even produce a text file
containing the results only, in a way that can be nicely re-read by
program and refactored.  They just produce directly text or html files
with the results embedded in whatever presentation was deemed best at
the time.

More than that I have no preference for a DB format versus an
easily-reparsable text file format.

A bientot,
