If we need to have a reference machine, I think it would be best to
use something that is more widely available (sorry Rick).  Something
like a Pentium NNN running Linux (I vote for NNN == 133, since that's
what I happen to have, but maybe it would be better to use something a
bit faster).

Also, how about keeping the results obtained with older versions of
Octave (at least for runs on the reference machine) so that we can
easily see if Octave is getting faster or slower as it gets older.

I would prefer to only have source code posted to octave-sources.
The help-octave group is fine for discussions as well as requests for
