Extremely interesting, but I'd recommend checking out The Great Language
Shootout --- Benchmarking is really a hard.
From looking at your Fibonacci code, for example, I suspect that what it's
actually measuring is how long it takes to allocate stack frames; it's calling
fib() a *lot of times*. This means that the results don't necessarily mean
anything in the real world.

(The GLS gets around this by using lots of different benchmarks, all of which
solve real-world problems. Any Neko users here want to write a bunch of
benchmark implementations?)

(Incidentally, your bar charts look awfully strange --- how come the high
numbers have shorter bars than the low numbers?)
