Look again at the context of the post. You'll then notice that the
comment was in reference to the increase of bootstrap times over a long
period of time -- my point was that in the last month alone there had
been a further large increase.
In the context of this particular post, I really don't believe that
we've increased the size of the GCC code base by 7% in the last 40 days,
so I assert that the compiler must have got slower in that time as well.
