Comment (by chillin-):

 But I did use the information, and I've made the best decision based on
 the information given and in deference to my older hardware, for which I
 have previously compiled pdftk for specifically. Being that the hardware
 is discontinued, and the vendor switched platforms, it is exceedingly
 unlikely that further development will occur with the platform
 architecture, so I'll never realize whatever performance advantages Java
 may -possibly- provide. Further, the pdftk-java readme estimates that due
 to the differences in Java and C++, that it is likely there are bugs in
 the Java version and further testing is required. Though I don't use it
 everyday, I consider it a production machine, and being that I will not be
 able to go back if I find problems with the Java version, I have stalled
 out of an abundance of caution. Though it is widely accepted that native
 code is generally more performant than interpreted, regardless of Java
 getting a boost from faster hardware, native code will always be more
 efficient than interpreted, and there's nothing Java will ever be able to
 do about that until there are Java hardware engines on every motherboard,
 which will likely never happen because it defeats the purpose of Java's
 portability. I was being silly towards the end and did not intend to
 offend anyone, didn't intend to start a flame war, but if anyone is
 delicate enough to take offense, I will reluctantly accommodate, and if it
 is war you want then it is war you shall have, because it is all beyond my
 ability to care.
