Is there any language that native-compiles faster than D?

I update compiler-benchmark with support for the reference go 
compiler. I'll update the numbers now. It will take a while. In 
the meanwhile you can evaluate it yourself using, for instance,

./benchmark --languages=D,Go --function-count=200 
--function-depth=450 --run-count=1

DMD is still far ahead of Go aswell; about 2.5x faster on check 
and 10x faster on build for my contrived example.

I also added a script


you can use to install most of the compilers I use in my tests on 
Ubuntu 20.04.
