Adobe Labs: Create a Lightroom Benchmark Experience Index application

If Adobe does not have such a thing it would be nice to have a benchmark application that performs all the possible operations that LR can perform on an image to characterize the performance of a particular computer hardware and software environment. Perhaps a user could supply their own raw file and even a database, to get a realistic idea is LR can perform on a particular system.

Maybe Adobe has such a thing, already, and if so then polish it up a bit and release it on Adobe Labs, at least.
In lieu of a separate application, enable performance collection in LR, itself, including how much memory is being used to cache things and the speed of such compared to non-cached access of data, so people can get specific times to compare as they vary their computer environment to see if things improve. It should also log any unexpected errors that are being handled but causing less-than-optimal methods to be used.
Lightroom is basically an operating system unto itself so should have operating system-level diagnostic tools like Activity Monitor or Resource Monitor.

It would not only be useful for the users, but also for Adobe. If we could upload our results to a database, Adobe would know, how their software performs in "real life".
