Common guys, we should thank Isaac and all involved in the Benchmarks Game.
And sure, they did us all a big favor.
I can perfectly understand that Isaac does not want to maintain hundreds of language implementations, keeping them up to date and perhaps having to patch benchmarks is certainly a tedious task.
Perhaps it would be more useful to have some community oriented "forks".
The Python community is going to have a speed.pypy.org instance at speed.python.org eventually.
Perhaps, someone interested would run a small set of languages to compare Lua implementations with other a few other languages. Just a small subset of the current Benchmarks Game. C, Java/Hotspot, and the various Lua implementations for the various platforms.
That would certainly be more interesting than to criticize Isaac for his good work...
