I have no idea about performance of F#: I'm talking about
using a Debian based Linux operating system which uses
dynamic loading of high performance machine binaries.

I once implement a Python interpreter in Ocaml, call Vyper.
One of the reasons I gave up was that to extend it with
the equivalent of Python's C modules, I had to write the
equivalent code in Ocaml and *statically* link it into
the program.

The main reason for doing this wasn't performance, but
to provide bindings to C libraries.
