Subject: RE: [Caml-list] Timing Ocaml
SICStus Prolog had the same problem as O'Caml with VC++. They solved it
by first 
running VC++ and generating ASM-code.

Then they have a small Perl-script that rearranges the code, and at 
last they compile the assembler code using MASM.

This improved the performance with 20-30% and in some cases 100% 
(for very simple byte code instructions where the switch overhead 
is relatively larger, for example the fameous naïve reverse.)
