And no, I'm not talking about confusing to someone who lives in

I'm only a casual programmer, and I love the speed metric you've
used. A 75% speed increase means that the new compiler will be
75% through compiling a second equivalent program by the time the
previous compiler finishes the first. It conjures images like the
ones in the Mopar video you posted. That's amazing to me. Here's
to burning rubber, Walter!
