Yeah, and a new optimization step only takes a few thenth of a second and
only a few extra KB of memory, so why not add it. And then everyone
complains that newer gcc versions are far slower than 2.95 was, and some
people can no more build complex applications due to the extra memory
requirements. It was just 0.1% bloat every time...

I hope you've already packed the UPS you're sending me. Once I receive
it, I'll gladly convert my ext3 filesystems to ext2. Until then please
do not compare apples to oranges.
