However let's not run too fast. The final goal is the one you stated in
you're first e-mail. The first step is make it possible to run
performance benchmarks on top of OSSTest.

That way, even before adding these kind of tests to automated testing,
people could use that to investigate the performance impact of some
change they're working on.

Let's figure out the details on whether and how to merge it with the
push gate machinery after we have the mechanism itself in place, ok? :-)

Sander, I can keep you posted on progresses I make, if you're interested
in that.
