Thanks for running those tests, Bryan. Pretty interesting stuff. I wasn't
sure from reading your post, but I'm assuming that the Java stuff had the
JIT enabled? I'd be curious to know what Java numbers would be without
it - I was really expecting Java + JIT to be a lot faster than those
tests showed... all that extra technology and meager (except ObjectTest!)
speed improvements.
