But do any of these factors change when using an interpreted language or 
environment as opposed to doing this "natively" (e.g. in C++)?

I mean, when the bottlenecks of copying ram are discussed, I sometimes 
get the impression that I'm being told: this is the part of code where 
the overhead of doing things in java (or whatever) rather than c++ is 
biggest, which is what I find counterintuitive. Or is it just a 
misunderstanding of mine?

Sorry if this is too much OT but since you kind of mentioned it you woke 
up an existing curiosity of mine and I ask because it seems you know 
about it ;)
