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

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.
