Today I noticed that some template-heavy C++ project code of mine shrank
from 4.5 MB in size (GCC 2.95, GCC 3.0 and GCC 3.1 and mainline CVS until
recently) to less than 1 MB using current mainline.
That is a reduction by a factor of nearly 5 for a binary generated with
-O3 -DNDEBUG -static and stripped!
That's truely amazing -- any ideas who the "culprit" might be?
