What the? It tests no extensions. The extensions have their own

Notice that it tests absulutely no parallel functionality, whereas
PostgreSQL tests things in parallel to check for concurrency problems:
"Note that this benchmark is single threaded, so it measures the minimum
time for the operations. We plan to in the future add a lot of
multi-threaded tests to the benchmark suite. "
It's said that for at least 4 years now.
Crash-me has nothing to do with testing, it jsut checks to see what
features a db supports:
"crash-me tries to determine what features a database supports and what
its capabilities and limitations are by actually running queries. For
example, it determines:
What column types are supported
How many indexes are supported
What functions are supported
How big a query can be
How big a VARCHAR column can be"
Obviously it has nothing to do with can I index every type in the system,
can I use the index to look up a set of test values, etc., etc.
