I disagree with your statement. Just like every benchmark, they serve
their purpose in their particular field of use, e.g. pybench may not
be useful for the JIT approach originally taken by the Unladden Swallow
project, but it's still useful to test/check changes in the non-JIT
CPython interpreter and it's extensible to take new developments
into account. pystone is useful to get a quick feel the performance
of Python on a machine.
