Could we please get a bit more detail with remarks like this?  One of
the problems trying to understand all this for amateurs like myself is
that you're both great experts on optimizing compilers, which I'm not,
and a lot of the discussion between you two seems to be based on
implicit assumptions.  (Or maybe not.  It's hard to tell.)
