I’m sorry but it’s completely unacceptable. 19ms is an age. Simple Unix commands are done in that time. 50 of those and a second has elapsed. Imagine one is using a Smalltalk script with the Unix find command and one can not do better than 50 applications per second.
We know that we can derive a meaningful performance figure from existing work. Why are we even considering adding unnecessary overhead?
