Just for the note, we had similar concerns with performance and other
regressions in MicroPython, and in the end,
http://micropython.org/resources/code-dashboard/ was set up. Performance
tracking is simplistic so far and consists only of running pystones;
mostly the executable size for different configuration is tracked, as
that's the most distinctive trait of MicroPython.
