When disclosing benchmark results, it is always in good manner to share:

- The exact method
- The dataset
- The raw numbers

I'm not arguing for or against any tool (I'm yet to try tup or ninja),
but tup's author actually does a "tup vs mordor" benchmark, where he
shows the tool is slower by a constant vs an ideal, hypothetical,
all-knowing, ungodly-optimised build tool.
