    As you may or may not remember I have a response benchmark, which does
    different things... And one of the things I found is that when trying to
    determine if a tuning was "better" was to look at the 90 and/or 95
    percentile value. The max, average, and SD give you information which
    may be hard to really understand, but the "mostly better than X" times
    are pretty easy to understand.

    I finally wound up using a dynamic percentile thing of my own creation,
    but there's no supporting theory, I just looked with response curve
    shapes and found a way to get numbers useful to me.

    So you might find the percentile values pull additional information out
    of your data points, particularly for noisy results.
