Ok.  I wasn't aware that anyone at Sun had actually done such a
metric, especially as across the product line(s), systems have fairly
wildly varying capabilities (for example, a T2000 has massive memory
bandwidth but proportionally low floating point).

Maybe privately you can send me a pointer and we can go talk to the
relevant folks.
