I've got a project for which I might need to write a fast and very small server.

I was initially thinking, that if I do in fact need to do this, that I
would have to choose Python over Ruby for the server, because it would
be faster.

however -- is JRuby fast enough for something like this?

(because it would definitely be cool if it was.)
