This benchmark is beaten to pulp in the discussion about it on slashdot.
It's a real stupid benchmark (as most benchmarks are) IMNSHO.

I mean, using python's arbitrary precision long object for 'math'
and comparing it to the other languages' long /machine types/... come on.
And thats just one of the flaws.
