I've spent a lot of time profiling compilers. The result is pretty obvious - dmc 
is by far the fastest C/C++ compiler available, and dmd blows away about every 
other language in compile speed.

Making this happen means you go after everything that eats time. Even a 5% 
improvement is a big deal. All those drips and draps add up to big speed increases.

Two corporate users of D have also told me that their motivating case to adopt D 
was - compile speed!

Throwing compile speed under the bus is what other compiler vendors do, and 
we're not going to do that.
