With these micro benchmarks I am shooting for bang-for-buck; so common lisp and scheme are worthwhile since I can do one test and run it on multiple implementations for each language to compare.

But now I'm looking at the nonstandard lisps like Hedgehog and uLisp, and that'd be cool too! Unfortunately they are equivalent to entirely new programming languages from the perspective of me implementing the test, so they'll have to wait.
