I am not an expert on these issues. I am the Release Manager, not the
all-knowing mastermind of GCC. :-)
I have heard reports of improvements, I have heard reports of
pessimizations. I do not have authoritative information one way or
We have to make tradeoffs between features and optimizations.
GCC 3.0 was primarily a feature release; I hope that 3.1 will focus
more on optimizations.
