OK -- time for me to confess....
I usually hack a chunk of code into sanitycheck.cgi that checks the
time, runs the query *many* times, then prints the time elapsed. As
long as I am checking one version of something agains another, it is not
a bad way to test. I rarely care about a 5% or 10% differrence,
though. Uusually, it is order-of-magnitude.
Perhaps we should add a mode to SendSQL that permits us to repeat
non-destructive queries enough to get a reasonable average?
