I'll cast my vote in favor of your suggestion for the interim posting of Golf and benchmark challenges to snippets.

I certainly think Perl Golf and little efficiency challenges can be both educational and recreational and deserving of their own little showcase. However, regarding your suggestion of two new sections devoted to Golf and benchmarking, perhaps all we require is just one general new section ('games' or 'challenges' or something) that could serve as an umbrella recreational category over not only golf and benchmark arenas but any other little challenges that one may come up with (logic puzzles, maze solving, or even gaming challenges such as the 'stones' contest from TPJ, etc). Perhaps this one section could end up sub-categorized much like the catacombs.

Oh, and a big ++ to arhuman for rooting out a few more nodes to squander my time on :-) ... the ultimate one at the bottom of his list is marvelous!
