Certainly, as RM, I am happy to have improvements in compile-time
performance made at this point; I certainly consider our gradual
degredation in compile-time performance over time to be a bug. On the
other hand, if Geoff's patches causes problems, we'll back them out
rather aggressively, since, as you say, they do not affect the core
correctness of the compiler.
