Yes I do the same for debug. For performance testing slightly random stuff adds fun (plus let me refresh some concepts, you know when the probability is slim one reflects a bit about which corners could be cut for a faster check). Otherwise I can just post my solution and you can test it with your routines.

Moreover with random inputs (within the given constraints) I ensure a bit more that my algorithm is correct (it happened more than once to catch errors that I did not catched before).

Wikis are great, Contribute :)
