Well, then the first order of business would be to write a benchmark 
kit.  I have been thinking for a while that we should make our own 
maintained version of the DBT+* suite, or whatever other suite is 
appropriate.  And then start running it.

The rest of this discussion, while interesting, cannot really lead to 
any improvements, because none of the results and analyses can be 
published.  Like, you know, "I have these great insights into important 
problems, but I cannot tell you about them."

Is it possible to write a possibly eventually compliant benchmark kit 
under open-source terms?
