  Performance tweaks don't need test cases of their own.

  One of the BuildBot slaves runs an Apple internal suite of performance
tests for each checkin, presenting the results in this form:
eportSummary.xml>. It's not possible to run these tests without checking in
a patch (for non-Apple people, that is), but at least one can promptly
rollback a patch that causes a performance regression :)
