Thanks for the link, Orson. It didn't surprise me that the compiled
languages were a lot faster than the interpreted languages in general,
but I was a little surprised to see that the Java bytecode interpreters
came so close to the compiled languages, and to Java compiled by gcj.
Also it was interesting to see, in some cases, three different programs
in the same language with apparently slight differences in their
algorithm but a factor of 3 difference in performance.
