tremendous job.  With the same amount of work we could add many

If execution of the other language is slower, the slowdown could make
Emacs unusable on old machines.  Old machines such as the T200 and
T400 are very important for our freedom since we can run them with
Libreboot.  We must not downgrade support for them.
