It is our pleasure to dedicate this paper to Prof. Evert Jan Baerends, who always insisted on not only producing numbers, but on deep understanding of both the theory and the experimental background.

Benchmark calculations provide a large amount of information that can be very useful in assessing the performance of density functional approximations, and for choosing the one to use. In order to condense the information some indicators are provided. However, these indicators might be insufficient and a more careful analysis is needed, as shown by some examples from an existing data set for cubic crystals.
