The only value in benchmarking Cocoon is when you do it
with itself.  If all hardware remains the same, then
software improvements become evident.

Of course, if the software remains the same, then you
can vary the hardware to see what does better.

I would measure three major things: memory usage,
CPU usage, and pages/second.

It might prove enlightening--and might help focus where
Cocoon might want to economize.

rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy,

accusing the US of arrogance, and Germany doesn't want
to go to war. And the 3 most powerful men in America
are named 'Bush', 'Dick', and 'Colon' (sic)".
