If I thought that pgbench was representative of anything, or even
capable of reliably producing repeatable numbers, then I might subscribe
to results derived this way.  But I have little or no confidence in
pgbench.  Certainly I don't see how you'd use it to produce
recommendations for a range of application scenarios, when it's only
one very narrow scenario itself.
