While the Parroteers claim promising results on some of the benchmarks
files (ie, faster than CPython), they did not get to where they could run
all of them, so they conceded. Guido & Sugalski got their respective
agreed-upon prizes ;-).

Reminds me of a joke, with shopkeepers and bread,
let me adapt it for the current situation:

Two programmers setup shops across the street from each other.
A customer walks into one and asks for a program:

- Here it is and it'll run in 10 seconds - says the first programmer
- But the other shop sells programs that run in 1 second! - the customer replies
- Why don't you then buy it from there?
- Cause right now their program does not work properly...
- Well, when our programs don't need to work right, they can
be made pretty fast too...
