Actually, I discovered "python -m test.pystone" during the talk of Mike Müller at EuroPython. http://is.gd/fasterpy

Even if they are suboptimal for true benchmarks, they should probably be mentioned somewhere.
In the same paragraph, there should be a link to the "Grand Unified Python Benchmark Suite" as best practice:

http://hg.python.org/benchmarks
http://hg.python.org/benchmarks/file/tip
http://hg.python.org/benchmarks/file/tip/README.txt

The last paragraph of this wiki page might be reworded and included in the Python documentation:
http://code.google.com/p/unladen-swallow/wiki/Benchmarks
http://code.google.com/p/unladen-swallow/wiki/Benchmarks#Benchmarks_we_don't_use



BTW, there's also this website which seems not updated anymore…
