What are the agreed upon constraints?  

A simple benchmark like pystone doesn't tell much.  Large systems used for
real work are more interesting and a more realistic measure of the
language+implementation than small synthetic benchmarks.  For example,
Zope might be a good choice, but measuring its performance is an
interesting (and difficult) problem in itself.
