[hackers] [ST] trivial benchmark

While playing with st, I tried a very simple benchmark:
$> time seq -f 'teeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeest %g' 999999

xterm: 0m28.508s
rxvt: 0m8.568s
st: 0m12.082s

Same fonts for all, but xterm and rxvt had saveLines=1024 (a buffer to be
able to scroll), which st does not seem to implement, right?
As any benchmark, take it "cum grano salis"!
