I thought about adding a requirement to use the TCK, but the TCK has
interesting legal issues with respect to getting access to the TCK.
Getting access to the TCK requires signing an NDA, and I'm not sure
Google allows us to require students to sign agreemnts such as the TCK
licensing agreement.    We might have to run the test for the student.

Good point.  Do we know of specific benchmarks that should be used
(like Volanomark, for example)?
