folks, in this case me, don't do much benchmarking at all. So far there was no 
real need for it since there has never been any choice: in the beginning we 
only had redland. You know that it is slow by using it for a few days. No need 
for a benchmark. Then we had sesame2 which is deprecated by Virtuoso simply 
because the latter has so many advantages. Performance is not even in the top 
5. ;)

But benchmarking seems like a good idea. And why not start with the standard 
one. Any chance that could be integrated into the Soprano model unit test?
