> I'd like to point out one fact about these benchmarks that seems to have been missed.  Seo's numbers are for running IronPython 1.1 on Mono - not on the Microsoft .NET implementation.  The Mono team has done excellent work with that project, but today the performance of the .NET implementation is still significantly better and is a much better platform for benchmarking IronPython's performance.

I never tried to claim otherwise. Perhaps I should have been more explicit.

Can you provide the raw pybench result files? I can host it on my site
side-by-side with Mono results.
