Wow, that's really impressive (especially as the rep vm has been around
longer than yours..)

One question: exactly which version of rep did you test against? The
version I'm releasing shortly (0.13) is about 60% faster than the
previous version on this benchmark (there was a stupid bug in the
compiler which affected the inner loop)

|        current rep         168 (1.0)
|        current Guile       679 (4.0)

I've not been trying to make interpreted code run fast, so I'm not
surprised by this..

|Anyway, just for your information.
