Another data point: they list HiPE as being about 18% slower than BEAM
on the random benchmark. On our P4 Xeon, not using the performance
counters just the regular time command, HiPE is instead 18% faster than
BEAM. (Which still is disappointing.)

So I'm not sure I have much confidence in their benchmarking methodology.
