It depends what they're trying to test. The name of the benchmark is really
misleading, and causes bad extrapolation -- it's called "Apache Benchmark",
but really all they mean is "Apache-BASED benchmark". They're not
benchmarking http performance on the distro: they're benchmarking
*something* represented by exercising a certain bit of code (which happens
to be Apache httpd) in a certain way.
