We Win! [Was Re: Speed Impact experiment on GCJ]

Great! Congratulations! But in all fairness you should probably compare
with experimental versions of other JVM's ;-) (you will probably win
anyway since the actual program is way to simple to benefit from
optimizations that are based on heuristic collected at runtime).
Has anyone tried using spec-jAppServer2004 or spec-JBB2005?
