What we need is a comprehensive test framework that will give a basis for 
comparison.   We already have some tests, but they could be greatly expanded.

Another issue to consider is that it's difficult to test gui elements in this 
way, so those must be tested by hand or using an automated gui testing tool 
such as Xrunner, or something similar.

I agree But somebody needs to start testing these things together by
writing small programs to find out whats lacking then propose
solutions on the list.
