AFAIK there's no comprehensive benchmark suite being used.

As for adding classes. I think what has been done is add the base of 
what is needed by chandler. Other stuff that i've needed i've tried to 
add myself and provide a patch or diff to the developers.

Would you mind elaborating on what is wrong with the StandardAnalyzer I 
dont' know enough about different quirks to know what would be 
appropriate to use. It seemed to me that adding analyzers would be 
pretty straight forward.
