Right, I was also trying to imagine what this would look like in
practical terms. Say I want to put a change into Gnus that I hope will
result in speedups. I make a git branch, make some commits. I probably
set up a git worktree for the branch. I create an init file for that
worktree emacs (so that I can run "emacs -Q -l init.el") that just adds
the elisp-benchmarks package to the load-path. Then I start my worktree
emacs, and run the benchmarks.

I'm just thinking this through -- the above workflow is fine as far as
I'm concerned.
