Just the tests that have been updated.

Since there have been a number of small changes, I think it's
time to also change the pybench version itself to 2.1 (not 3.0;
that's reserved for more major changes).

I don't think they should go into 3.0.1 - they are a new feature
and not a bug fix.

I'll leave that decision to the release manager.

Please backport to 2.7 only.

Please run the suite and add the complete new output.
