I did an estimate of this effect a fair while ago via the 
addition of some extra timing code to a processor. If I 
recall correctly my conclusion was there was on average 
typically only about 10% of the processing time that could 
be significantly influenced by choice of runtime, be that 
interpreter, virtual machine or native code.
