I guess you didn't mean it that way, but "intermediate solution" makes it
sound like you expect any of these to go away one day. They sure won't.
Manually optimised C and Fortran code will always beat JIT compilers,
especially in numerics. It's a game they can't win - whenever JIT compilers
get too close to hand optimised code, someone will come along and write
