Those tests are flawed. I just submitted some improvements to the pascal 
code. Look at objects for example. The author of that benchmark forgot 
to .free those classes. C++ for example uses static classes and inlines. 
So that's for the "comparison".

Don't trust those benchmarks, most are just a load of bullshit.
