We definitely agree. Those are far too out of date. We'll be getting on some new benchmarks soon, especially with our new Python WSGI support.
We don't do benchmarks too often because they don't prove very much — it's incredibly hard to set up a benchmark that reflects the real world, so there will always be arguments over what's faster in what situation. That said, we could all use more information.
As I said, we'll be doing some new benchmarks for dynamic content, but we always appreciate any benchmarks anyone else performs. If anyone's got a benchmark, we'd love to share it.
"...of shoes and ships and ceiling wax/ and cabbages and kings,/ of why the sea is boiling hot/ and whether pigs have wings."
