nice to know where are some JS implementations relative to Lua.  also,
i thought SpiderMonkey was the new JIT-able from Mozilla... or am i
mixing names?  the other datapoints i'd like to know are squirrelfish,
and 'regular' firefox JS (or is that SpiderMonkey?).

also, between FF 2 and 3 there was a noticeable speedup. but i have no
idea if it would change the relative order in your table
