I happily second that!

I just want to add, that contributions to this benchmark are welcome
as this is supposed to be a general purpose project for libraries benchmarking,
not affiliated with any project in particular.
Anyone who would like to add new tests/libraries feel free to send patches

(Perhaps I should move it to GitHub one day.)
