Achilles Heel of Livecode

Try writing a serious arcade game with LiveCode.
Sorry but it just isn’t up to the task as it isn’t fast

Remember Compile-It for Hypercard?  Perhaps
we need something similar for LiveCode that
would run at standalone creation time, or
whenever we request it for that extra-speed.

I know the system took a big hit with Unicode,
so how about the option to turn it off for programs
requiring super speed?

Just my 2 cents.  :-)

Enjoy your day!
