Once upon a time, functions deemed performance critical were
implemented within the C core.  Over time that impetus has
diminished greatly.  I have observed large amounts of functionality
migrate from C to lisp.  Native compilation can only have reinforced
that evolution.

The net effect has been to reduce the need for most emacs developers
ever to need to work in any language other than lisp.
