      Description

      This is a speculative issue about the potential of one day being able to run Moodle under the HipHop Virtual Machine:

      https://github.com/facebook/hhvm

      The benefit is significant speed increases in php running times.

      But please note that this may never be achievable due to limitations hhvm would need to impose. However, seeing the direction of the project they are keen to get to extend compatibility:
