I was reading one of the SELF papers and came across the notion of MiMS,
Millions of Messages per Second, as a measure of the efficiency of an
object oriented language. I was wondering if anyone knew any typical
dispatch performance figures for multiple dispatch (multi-method) object
oriented languages such as CLOS. Obviously the dispatch performance
depends on the number of arguments involved in the dispatch, but even
figures for a single argument function would be helpful.
