The good news: We have this tool called 'darcs-benchmark', which you can
install with 'cabal install darcs-benchmark'


The bad news is that we're having some (hopefully!) temporary problems
with that, notably:

$ darcs-benchmark --get
downloading and extracting:
darcs-benchmark: Codec.Compression.Zlib: incorrect header check

Petr: any chance you'd be able to take a look?

Darcs-benchmark certainly does not do everything we would want, yet but
I hope we can turn it into the one best practice for generating hard
performance numbers.  Hacking on this could be a good way to contribute
to the performance effort...
