V8 was the relevant player there when talking stand-alone JS
implementation, so this got me curious. Which are the other ones? The
ones sponsored by the other major browsers? (IIRC, Apple and Mozilla
have their own JS compilers). If that's the case, it seems to me
that's more of a matter of having major companies heavily invested in
the project (I believe Python performance is not critical for Dropbox
can't just switch to Go like Dropbox seems to be doing).
