It sounds like you have been traumatized, almost, by such
discussion in the past, passibly?

To be fair I don't think anyone is pushing for that. It would
be to burn down the house to kill the rats.

We should rather identify advantages SBCL has over Elisp and
see if we can bridge that gap, possibly even using technology
straight from their toolbox.

As for speed I think we can conclude the native-compile
feature is the solution, but it hasn't been taken to its full
potential which is expected since it is quite new.

As for the multicore processing thing, I wonder how they
did that? And why can't we do that as well with Elisp?
