It is a great idea. Please stop being a pessimistic obstructionist (esp.
regarding a system you don't even use ;-).
For some very short contrived tests, the C compiler may look much slower.
Have you actually compared the bootstrap time for FreeBSD 5.X just before
the change in compiler to just after? I have not personally tested it
but perhaps David could post the exact time difference he saw when he
made this change.
