If I remember well, Shoutout benchmark did not use native compilation.  
This is something that could improve the performance. However, the time  
where mesure including startup time of the erl environment with the  
standard boot file. Using escript could speed thing (to avoid the complete  
environment startup penalty: In real life application you only start it  
once).

I hope this helps,
