One area that is in terrible need of attention is nofib itself. It's a
good start but it needs many more testcases representative of today's
It would be great if we could get users to submit their
computationally-heavy, toy projects. Unfortunately, the best testcases
for us are those with no dependencies outside of the core libraries and
these projects aren't terribly common.
