Sorry to say no, and my personal opinion is, that it is not such a
great idea, but this is solely based on 'personal feeling' rather than
profound technical insight.

I liked this quote best:

"The big win will be running on a VM that does dynamic compilation,
selective inlining, and all the performance that comes from that. With
that be enough to out-weigh the various disadvantages? Time wil show."

Given the trmendous work which has been done on Luajit2 and the vast
improvements speedwise, I wonder I sthg. a least mildly comparabel
could be done to the Beam VM. Is some work going on for HIPE or the VM
in general?
