You are right, I have changed "user:" to 'user and so on.  I would have
liked to keep the colon for readability, but the printed form of 'user: is
even worse to read.

I don't know which kind of information would be most useful here:  One
might like to see the total execution time of the whole benchmarking suite
including the framework code, or one might want to see the summarized
execution time of the benchmarks only.  Both would be easy to add.  So,
what should be used for a summary - maybe even some different solution?
