Since C is my sharpest tool, the question is somewhat moot :)

Once you get past the overhead of parsing a scripting language like PHP or 
Python, I think the efficiency advantage of C is minimal and the actual 
execution time will be dominated by whatever the daemon is 'talking to' -- 
i.e. Asterisk or MySQL or ...

For smaller, frequently executed programs, C will be at home enjoying a 
cold one with friends and family before scripting programs get out of the 
starting gate.

Thanks in advance,
