PNetMark is a direct port of the CaffeineMark from Java to C#, with only 1 
differerence - it uses C#'s 2D arrays in the Float benchmark instead of 
arrays of arrays, as in Java.  You are welcome to verify this for yourself, 
and to submit patches if you do find a discrepancy.  The CaffeineMark has 
been widely used to benchmark the compute performance of JVM's, which is why 
I chose it.

I was extremely careful not to embellish it, or to slant it towards pnet.  
Since version 0.0.1, the only changes have been to the build system, FAQ, and 
detection of runtime engines that don't have floating point (for benchmarking 
embedded CLR's).  The core code remains unchanged.

If you would care to suggest a better benchmark to port, then do so.  But 
don't insult my profressionalism by implying that PNetMark is not 
independently written or verifiable just because it has "pnet" in its name.
