[PATCH][RFC] Implement benchmark script in python


I reimplemented the benchmark code generation script in python since I
figured it would be nicer to read and maintain.  This has the
disadvantage of an added dependency on python - I think someone (or
maybe me?) mentioned it as a problem in the past - but it could be an
optional dependency only for those who want to run benchmarks.  I was
also emboldened by Will's (really old) patch to add a python script
that generates graphs for benchmark outputs.

I have posted the script below, which has been tested to verify that
it generates identical code barring whitespace differences and removal
of some extra semi-colons.  All current benchmarks build correctly.
