The blurb for the Ruby interpreter Rubinius


mentions that it

"draws on the best virtual machine research and technology of the past
30 years and incorporates the newest research in dynamic language

Has that topic been a "hot area of research? Is it still today?

I am starting to think of Scheme as the interpreter for any given
language; but as folks have mentioned before, most "high
performance/professional" interpreters are written in C.
