The conclusion I reached stems from this.
You have a very neat language. It lacks nothing and wastes nothing. And
you get great performance, specially in relation to the hassle-freeness
and portability of the deployment.
If you need more performance, because you happen to need some esoteric
stuff (for a scripting language), you do not start spoiling the
language, but try the JIT compiler. You get tons of performance at the
cost of having to test for hardware support, checking compiler logs, and
stuff like that.
And if even then it doesn't have the performance characteristics you
need, perhaps it was the wrong language to start with.
