Even thou I never looked for a list of what's enabled in rawhide, I'd be 
surprised if other distros do not have something similar. They may be in 
different development stage, right (e.g. already beta).

>From the other comments: I understand the benchmarking is not only firing 
some test suite, but about comparing and tuning. I may try to arange one 
old PC with "out of the box" rawnhide to run periodicaly e.g. the Phoronix 
test suite and publish the results - this will provide comparison. Let's 
see, if it'll be useful.
