I finally finished my post on the performance of the JVM-based Markdown

The performance of each processor heavily depends on the input, so I
split up the test into various scenarios. In a mixed test Actuarius
comes in first, followed by PegDown followed by Knockoff, roughly in a
1:2:4 Ratio. (My first test contained a lot of plain text which is
processed well by Knockoff, yet when you mix in some emphasis, links
etc. it Knockoff gets pretty slow.)

I will release the testsuite ASAP.

I am looking forward to the PegDown improvements, that will give me a
reason to pimp up Actuarius a bit more :)
