Actually, I am not seeing that.  The setup as provided does the native
compilation in deferred mode, which forks asynchronous native code
compilation, apparently while continuing to run byte code.  When the native
code is ready, it is swapped in, replacing the interpreted byte code.  So, if
your system has multiple cores (like mine) and is not overloaded, you may not
see slow down - only eventual speed up.

Thank you for this, Ken!
