Of course, the Shootout uses hand-translated code. I'd be interested to
compare using machine-translated code, using the same algorithm in each
language. (I'm well aware that I'm not working in the real world here.)

May I say that that is awesome?

Oh, I'm well aware that it would be a lot of work! And I don't expect
you to drop what you're doing and do one. I'm willing to let you rest
for a few weeks before producing the next miracle...

Actually, I'd be quite willing to have a look at it myself (after
waiting for the codebase to stabilise), but I suspect I won't have the
opportunity; I have a feeling that other people with more money than I
are going to be eyeing LuaJIT and ARM and rubbing their hands together.
