Personally, I have very little interest in fine details of PARI
performance as far as it comes without a real test suite (so we know
about PARI correctness "on nearly trivial input" only).  What I would
really appreciate is a beefed up test suite which focuses on coverage,
not benching.

Hope this helps,
