No, not particularly. But it reads nice that way anyway, and I figure
since we have it we should use it.

Yes, this (git.) is definitely a possibility even if the main
second-level domain is not used for musl website.

Yes. This is something I'd like help on, and it doesn't really need a
lot of expertise. Basically the part that could use some work would be
a matter of improving the actual measurements (e.g. adding min/avg
runtime for certain interesting calls, and throughput in MB/sec for
various usage patterns, etc. where it makes sense, rather than just
arbitrary runtimes with no context) and automating the process of
testing sizes and speeds.
