There's a post online comparing Python's performance of matrix
arithmetic to C, indicating that Python's performance was 100x (yes, 2
orders of magnitude) slower than C's.

If I understand it correctly, matrix modules in Raku call GNU code
written in C to perform the actual work.

Does that make Raku significantly faster for matrix work, which is a
large part of many contemporary applications, such as AI and video
manipulation? If it does, that could be a big selling point.
