I tried to keep out of this, but -- let's see numbers, please.
Jan and me have performed relatively extensive tests in June when Jan
was working on the improved inliner, and also Richard Guenther has been
running extensive tests with his applications.
Arguing about the skills of C++ programmers, their possible intentions,
etc. really does not seem very productive (and several of the claims made
definitely do not match my experience). In general, in GCC-land, if one
wants to change current behavior, the burden is on him to show that the
change is benefical.
