Since both of these use memory buffers for communication, I think performance for all but
the most trivial cases will be determined by the disk-speed-constrained database, NOT by
the glue.

Assuming your time is worth anything, pick your language based on clean design, speed of
implementation, and maintenance effort, then throw hardware (relatively cheap, compared
to human resource) at the problem if it's too slow.
