+        runCount in runner.js should be renamed to iterationCount
+        https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=102208
+
+        Reviewed by Tony Chang.
+
+        Prior to this patch, there were terminology confusions between "runs" and "iterations".
+        The term "run" should refer to running a performance test once, and "iteration" should
+        refer to one measurement in the test. i.e. Executing run-perf-should once will result in
+        a single "run" of performance tests and each test may execute multiple "iterations"
+        to complete the run.
+
+        Unfortunately, we still overload the meaning of "runs" in "runs/s" (is "function calls/s")
+        but that could be addressed in a separate patch.
