Manu Cornet is a GTK+ torturer

One goal was to torture theme engines, putting widgets in all sorts of uncomfortable situations and trying to break them. A side effect was benchmarking engines (see for example this post about OLPC engine).
Faster than light Fernando Herrera wrote a patch for command-line support and suggested all of this could be used in jhautobuild to detect performance regressions. I cooked the necessary jhbuild support and posted about gtk-theme-torturer integration into jhautobuild.
This is fast getting old, just like LDTP and dogtail support, I am just providing a link to a not-that-interesting page on a test server, nothing real, easy.
So I finally took the time to integrate all of this, LDTP, Dogtail and GTK+ Theme Torturer, into the real build host, http://jhbuild.bxlug.be, so I could run real daily tests.
I failed to get LDTP working (must look again into the issue) but Dogtail is working nice (it just lacks test, must get back on this too) and gtk-theme-torturer is there too, producing tables full of numbers.
Everybody loves graphs.
I must now wait a few days to see if the results are stable (since there are lots of other processes on that host) but I can already plot three points:
