Hi everybody,

Remember this interesting series of articles Robert Fendt wrote about
benchmarking multiple revision control system?

Robert (bcc'ed) has kindly agreed to dig up his scripts and pass them on
to the Darcs community.  The scripts are now attached.

a try?

Many thanks to Robert!


PS. Robert: I seem to recall a few spammy comments being posted on some
    of these articles, may be worth checking out.
