I'm not sure this is the answer you expect, but you should look at
this thread in comp.lang.scheme:
There's a Physics PhD in it from Cornell who claims Bigloo Scheme
gives a whopping performance. My answer, of course, implies you want
to roll or adapt your own routines.
And, BTW, did you know, while I'm in that area, did you see the
benchmarks for GHC (Glasgow Haskell Compiler) as compared to Fortran
G95? It's just amazing:
If the last URL got you curious, then read more form the GHC homepage...
I don't know about you, but me, I orbit around these languages and I
think skills gathered in one lead you easily to the other. So, I'm
really not loyal to one or to the other.
