I'm trying to understand what is meant by this benchmark. How does 
tinyBenchmarks get run on 8 cores. How does the work get distributed 
among the cores. But I cannot find the answer quickly - see below.

The links take you to the ACM portal. One promising link on the portal:
     DLS '09 Proceedings of the 5th symposium on Dynamic languages
is a dead link to HPI (www.uni-potsdam.de). I doubt I want to subscribe 
to ACM portal at this point, just to find out more about RoarVM. And, 
given that ACM portal is the only place to find out more, I doubt I'm 
going to look at RoarVM for any more than the brief glance through the 
github source that I've already done.
