Having something close to a non-regression test would be just great.
First idea would be to have it embedded into gnubg's code, maybe as
a python script.

The current speed test (withot the bug) is fine enough to measure
the eval speed (which is not the overall speed you can expect in a rollout).
For example, it gives you quickly an idea of how much a -O0 build is slower
than a -03 one. I'm more for fixing it and work on a separate non-regression
