   Library design, particularly the features, algorithms and data structures
chosen, is much more important than the underlying language interpretation
speed. You can see this in the different speeds of C++ GUI toolits on a
given platform. An example current performance issue is the slowdown
toolkits take on Linux/X for using Unicode - GTK+ 2 is quite a bit slower
than GTK+ 1.
