Hi Kees,

In the near term future you have boot speed and we will be doing power 
testing as well via a high end Fluke Network meter. That power bits are 
still a work in progress but we should have something up in the next few 
weeks. cking is the guy to talk to.

As far as benchmarking, load & stress tests, they are on the long term 
roadmap for QA but not for this cycle.

Hope that helps.
