For me performance is a pain point.  If I can demonstrate LC is at least 
on par with other scripting languages I get a foot in the door. But in 
server work performance counts a lot.

So the question I've been wondering is:  what exactly did the PHP team 
do in their v7 to boost its speed so far beyond v5, blowing pretty much 
every other scripting language out of the water, and is there anything 
among those optimizations that can be applied to LC?

If LC were even close to being as fast as PHP7, it would so destroy 
Rails it would open many doors....
