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

that is not what SSA is used for. ;-)

also, well-formed SSA is dead easy to generate: just don't try to be smart, 
and don't write "locals reuse logic" at all. other passes will take care of 
eliminating redunant loads and locals. and then simple linear scan register 
allocator will give you very surprising results. ;-)

The Great Secret of SSA is "don't be smart". each SSA pass should do only 
one thing, it should do it in the easiest possible way, and only care about 
repairing SSA damage it done. and then you can easily add more passes, and 
choose between generated code quality and time spent on optimising.
