Suggestion for CPU Benchmarks

Greetings Tek Syndicate!

It would be great if you could add some compile tests to your CPU benchmarks. I think this is an area where many sites are lacking proper testing and it would be a welcome addition for many developers. Sure, there are some synthetic benchmarks like SuperPee, but as you know, real life is always different. Maybe you could take a few of the bigger open source projects and see how fast they compile on different architectures? I'm sure you can come up with something meaningful.

And here is another suggestion: block chain verification times!

Cheers! As an incentive: I'll ship you some beer from Austria if you do this!
