Well, they do. It's also true that these performance differences can be swamped 
by the quality of the implementation, and the ability of the programmer. But 
that doesn't mean there are not inherent performance differences due to the 
semantics the language requires.

It's like car racing. The performance is a combination of 3 factors:

1. the 'formula' for the particular class you're racing in
2. the quality of the construction of the car to that formula
3. the ability of the driver

It's simply wrong to measure the performance and then naively attribute it to 
one of those three, pretending the other two are constant.
