WANTED: reliable benchmarks to improve Python speed/performance estimation.
REWARD: the thanks of the whole community.

I spent some time at the recent Need For Speed sprint addressing 
benchmarking questions, and discovered that we need more benchmark tests 
for speed and perfomance. Sean Reifenshneider seems to be on the trail 
of one addition, but the, more the merrier. It's not easy to write good 
benchmarks ...
