Was thinking of exactly that. Run the same number of gets/sets through 
text or binary and compare the cpu usage reported via 'stats'. Should 
also log latency differences in the clients. Between latency and CPU 
used for batch operations, that'll give us most of the idea of if it 
sucks or not.

Sweet :)
