I am serious when I say that the GAE loading request time for a Clojure app is noticeably longer than the time for Java or Python. I searched for some benchmarks and found this: http://github.com/garyburd/app-eng-cold-start-test See http://googleappengine.blogspot.com/2009/12/request-performa... for more info on loading request perf.

Both of those are about "loading requests" which happen pretty rarely in the larger scheme of things (on upload, new server for app, too much traffic so need to scale jvm). On my current project, it's 3.5-4 seconds. Definitely not ideal, but it's not that common an event.

I'd like to run some benchmarks for normal requests, where I doubt there'll be any real difference.

Thanks for the search.
