I get almost identical results overall on SciMark with AOT and JIT 
compilation. The overall results are 97.0 MFlops (JIT) versus 95.4 MFlops 
(AOT). Some subtests are faster with JIT; some are faster with AOT. This 
difference is less than what I see from week to week comparing JIT-to-JIT, as 
various components of the runtime change.
