Add a flag that says to use this ST value as a benchmark or not. Or even have a completely separate list pointer (but still of type "struct fmt_tests") for the benchmarks.

A pending change to the encoding stuff is to make all flag integers a bitfield instead of the bunch of ints we have now. This would make the encoding case much easier to implement. magnum
