In addition to these, there's actually a nice set of sample primitive 
operations to test included in the "Advanced transactional" section of 

I have code that does this sort of thing, including tests at multiple 
client loads, that even spits out HTML for the results.  It's based on 
pgbench and I sent out hundreds of results generated by it when I was 
doing the background writer optimization.  The results are thoroughly 
boring on just my system, and I'm just waiting for a larger server to be 
available before it's worth my trouble to revive that project.  Once such 
a system becomes available, I could have a basic set of tests like these 
ready the day after I get a login.

That's not to say what you're talking about isn't needed, because using 
pgbench introduces some limitations and buildfarm integration is a whole 
different topic.  But I have made a first move here and only need the 
hardware to become available before I can produce something useful with
