I like to second that, if performance is *that* important you wouldn't 
go with Java either, you be better of with C or even assembly. Doesn't 
mean you should write everything in C, just the parts that are 
performance critical, preferably with a 'slow' fall back if there isn't 
an optimized routine available yet for a specific platform.
