That's not strictly true; what's happening here is that someone's
published a cool-looking bar graph but nobody knows what it really
means. I don't feel the need to delve into everyone's benchmarks to
explain why Python is purportedly worse. If someone uses those kinds
of numbers to decide which programming language to use, they have
bigger problems.
