Of course it is necessary to restrict to true interpreters, for its
unfair otherwise. Bytecode or native code are intented to optimize
performance at the cost of extra stages of compilation.
On the other hand, the relative benchmarks in the comp.lang.scheme
article vary significantly from task to task (within the test suite).

Does that depend on the Java virtual machine? (jdk, kaffe, ...) ?
While being at kawa, I have seen a new free partial clone of Sun's
java standard library announced on the gnu software page. Will that
one be tested with kawa, too?
