I think that (one of the) point(s) that Chris was trying to make
was that this list isn't really targeted very near the tetris-clone-
writing level and might be considered an 'advanced' linux
game development list.  'Advanced' is largely (but certainly
not exclusively) synonymous with high-throughput 3D games
where the unsuitability of interpreted languages for core engine
(AI and 'game logic' excepted) becomes more obvious.
