Benchmarks.

The golang/snappy benchmarks include compressing (Z) and decompressing (U) ten
or so files, the same set used by the C++ Snappy code (github.com/google/snappy
and note the "google", not "golang"). On an "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770 CPU @
3.40GHz", Go's GOARCH=amd64 numbers as of 2016-05-29:

"go test -test.bench=."
