I listed my hardware on the page, and I re-collated the results to
group them by input file to make comparisons easier. I don't have a
Raspberry PI, so if someone wants to run the bench program and report
the results that would be lovely.

Yep, the bench program and input files are here:

I don't have a 200MB JSON file, and I have doubts that it would
provide much more information than what we have already. I'd also
prefer not to put a 200MB file into the repository. The goal of this
library is to be in the same ballpark as rapidjson, it doesn't try to
be the top performer (in fact, rapidjson achieves its performance by
making usability tradeoffs which are unsuited for vocabulary types).

However if someone wants to run the bench program on a 200MB file or
any other custom inputs and report the results, that would be great!
