As far as I am aware, the module has not been used for benchmarks submitted
to the SPEC organization. That is the moment any code would get 'blessed':
SPEC validates the results and the way they were obtained and the
benchmarkee submits the API source code as part of this process.

This is the case for Dynamic CGI GET requests. You set a special URL for
this in your rc file. All other dynamic requests can be processed by
in-process code and most if not all submittors have written code for this.
