I don't understand these numbers. When compiling on Linux x86_64 
myself with DMD and LDC, I get a 900k executable and a 692k 
executable, respectively. I also get different results with 
GCC/Glibc (dynamic: 7.7k, static: 761k), or with the assembly 
itself (760 bytes).
It's like all the sizes in the blog post are bigger somehow. How 
am I getting results so wildly different from the post ? I'm a 
bit puzzled
