apologies but I lost you there, what do you mean with the "simplified" one?

alright, I was thinking of a couple scripts to generate traffic and
then do the queries, I think Jesse mentioned something like that on
irc based on gmetric. I believe something like that would be useful,
and either python of perl could be enough to write something threaded
to generate enough load for testing I guess. Is that what you meant
when you said "banging to resulting binary"?
