[erlang-questions] [ANN] Silly benchmarking

This is not an announcement of anything -- but [ANN] seems to flag
"something I can maybe use" which does apply in this case :)

Occasionally I wonder, "what's faster"? It's not often, but it happens.

I've found the best way to answer this is to measure things.

So I have this silly project:

https://github.com/gar1t/erlang-bench

It's not rigorous but it's simple and I can experiment quickly with
different implementations. My goal is just to get a sense of things --
not to formally prove anything.

It's so trivial it's almost not worth sharing/reusing -- *however* it
may provide value as a distributed repository for what people are
interested in. As it's in github there's no ownership -- please feel
free to fork and use for your own concerns!
