He's talking of just "multiparadigmaticality", not efficiency.
The mozart/Oz platform have a stronger point on stuff like 
constraint/logic/declarative concurren/etc programming, more than most 
of the CL frameworks (not that this is hard in CL, it's just not as 
central as in Oz).  Btw, I think AliceML (which just hit 1.0) would be 
better than Oz, if accompaniying with python, just to have a 
dynamic/static contrast :)
