pycore vs IronPython

Patrick Logan talks about Yet Another Python implementation named pycore, a Python VM implemented in Smalltalk. Yawn, you say? Well, right now it’s completely unoptimised, and seems to benchmark better than CPython. I can see this giving the much-more publicised IronPython a run for its money. Isn’t it great how Smalltalk can still compete well with today’s modern VMs?
