Indeed. And I even have the whole infrastructure available[1], currently
just polishing on minor-minor detail struggles before it continuously
runs against Perl's git repo:

(both currently only contain just example runs).

It doesn't work with 5.6, but from 5.8.x+.

So whoever wants to have code benchmarked only needs to put the micro
snippets into a plugin like

and I will take care of all the other stuff.

I had it nearly finished on the last QA hackathon and took the last
weeks to re-setup after my server crashed before YAPC::EU. I'm out for a
long weekend, but it will continuously run from next week, really. :-)
