Interpreted Erlang is within 10x of the top, natively compiled
benchmark.  It's ahead of GForth, which is one of the fastest
interpreters out there (one that doesn't even do dynamic type checks).
 That's great!

And if you compare Erlang to the big scripting languages, then wow do
the results looks good: 6x faster than Lua, more than 40x faster than
Perl and Python (igoring the not-ready-for-production-use Psyco
compiler results
