I thought about that some and couldn't come up with any better idea than
measuring each thread independently, but yeah, that makes it a lot harder
to draw general conclusions.

Maybe the right thing to do is start measuring article latency and
throughput through the server in addition to measuring time spent in
various places for identification of bottlenecks?
