Not that this voice will help in anything, but I think the above is
virtually impossible to achieve unless you have a bunch of machines,
OSs and VMs to continually test on and a consistent set of benchmarks
plotted over time... and of course check every single commit for
regression over all these combinations. And even then you'd always
find a case of something being faster or slower on some combination of
hardware/ software; optimizing for these differences makes little
sense to me (people struggling with performance on some weird
software/hardware combination can always change the VM vendor or a VM

Sorry for being so pessimistically unconstructive... :(
