The benchmark running code didn't change significantly. The actual
benchmarks however did. US's micro-benchmarks were removed and new
things were added (the biggest addition is probably the whole set of
twisted benchmarks). The original idea was to converge and have the
common repo on hg.python.org, but since unladen run out of steam,
nobody bothered to update the hg.python.org one so we continued on our
