in thread Perl 6 is going to get a lot faster in 2013
Parrot has at various times beaten a lot of languages and implementations on various microbenchmarks
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that has been the case for a long time (ie since the removal of the JIT in 2009(?)), and never for any language except PIR.
Rakudo/JVM might or might not work out, but as far as I can tell we already know that Rakudo/Parrot has not.
