* Startup time: Is the time to start the "X" interpreter prohibitive?
   (On my computer, "python -c pass", which starts the Python
   interpreter and does nothing, takes about 24ms.)  This overhead would
   be incurred by every command that is not pure C.
FWIW, on Windows 7 running on a Core i7 1.6GHz quad core processor, a cold run of "python -c pass" after a reboot results in 0.74 seconds. The second run takes 0.13 seconds.

Because Lua was mentioned in another message of this thread, I'll provide the following:

* A cold run of 'lua5.1 -e ""' takes 0.4 seconds. The second run takes 0.03 seconds.
* A cold run of LuaJIT takes the same.
