But look, they have added ATS instead!

It can't appeal people that like C/Algol syntax only, but it comes out at the top as performance...

It firstly compiles to C, then invokes gcc to do the rest. With the same 
algo, same idea, same trick, and same background compiler, you should 
have similar speed.

The one who contributes ats entries is also ATS author. He knows every 
odd & end of his language.

Think about replacing C with asm in your period:

And ATS has a refined (compared to C) type system, that can make practical difference in the way you write ATS code, even if at the end it's all converted to C.
