CCing this mail to the wget-dev list so that the others can see / comment on

I would rather that the scripts are indeed still written in Bash.
The benchmark scripts should be small and generally require shelling out a lot.
Bash is the best fit.

However, right now, I think it a more pressing concern that we have is for
benchmarking the effects of HTTP/2 multiplexing. Look at the discussion here:

The basic idea would be for you to write a script that has Wget2 connect to a
HTTP/2 server. The different scenarios that I can currently think of are:

- Downloading lots of individual files from the server in parallel
- Mirroring the server recursively. Preferably when the recursion requires
  parsing large / complex documents. 

You can start with using a stock nghttp2 server locally. But, you will have to
create the data that it should serve. Also, use `taskset` to set the CPU
affinities of the server and Wget2 client to different CPUs so that script can
measure the CPU utilization as well
