Oh, I just stuck that under Tools because it was convenient for testing.  The timing script is in a separate patch because I'm -0 on committing the timing script itself.

The perf.py that my timing script uses is based on the one from benchmarks/, but with 90% of the code removed, so the amount of duplicated code is less than it may at first appear.

My script could go in benchmarks/ if there was a convenient way for it to import perf.py.  I wouldn't want to clutter the top-level directory with my script though.  Any suggestions?
