I *assume* that they use it for relatively quickly prototyping
new/experimental features.  The ability to test things quickly and
keep ahead of the competition is part of their competitive advantage.
Things put into production use are legitimately (in an economic sense,
for quick response and CPU farm savings) rewriten in C?? and I presume
they do.
