Where can Racket be expected fall in comparison with other languages in 
executable speed?

I'm looking at C-Ada-SBCL Lisp-Clojure-Java-Python-Ruby as a kind of a 
rough map.  I checked speeds reported by 
http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/, but no Scheme language seems to be 

My rough guess is that it would fall about level with Clojure, but 
that's purely based on both being JIT compilation languages of a similar 
form.   The Guide didn't seem to help, though it did give hints on how 
to make ones programs more efficient.
