Performance figures interesting

Using the tinyBenchmark microbenchmark from Squeak I find the following
figures interesting.  I wonder how the Klein VM will fare?  In all cases the
benchmark was run several times to give the VM a chance to cache the
compiled version if it so chose.


2.0Ghz Pentium/M w/2GB 533Mhz memory


 '327784891 bytecodes/sec;  9379747 sends/sec'


 '859781696 bytecodes/sec; 71069397 sends/sec'


 ' 30563514 bytecodes/sec;  4467145 sends/sec'


PowerMac G5 2.0Ghz w/4GB 400Mhz memory


 ' 25196850 bytecodes/sec;   879023 sends/sec'
