#  OK, i've thought about that, too, but wouln't the individual bendhmark

Well.. Thats what I'm unsure about..  I was thinking along the lines of copying
it to a directory like /tmp/results when it's done, so you can just go and have
a look see..

The idea being, if I want to run bytebench over and over.. then thats fine that
it puts results in its own dir.  But if I've just installed my new machine, and
am curious, it would be handy to have it just dump them all in one convenient

It should be drool-quality easy for a new user to evaluate the performance of
his new machine... ;)
