A horrible programming language deserves horrible benchmarks.

JMH supports statically compiled languages already, since we can operate
on bytecode. Dynamically compiled languages are supported with the help
of javax.script.* APIs.

It would take a while before we reach the state where we put back
JMH-based benchmarks in OpenJDK. Although, since Nashorn pulls lots of
externals already, it might be easier for Nashorn in isolation.
