	I don't, and for once you may smile at my disagreement.
I use the ocaml native code compiler (optimised by itself) exlusively,
and I consider it lightning fast. On my Pentium 550E, I can compile
20 or some modules and interfaces in a few seconds.

	[It is ocamllex which is slow ... and has annoying
size limitations. Can these be fixed? Something even as simple
as a recognizer for UTF encoded ISO-10646 'letters' breaks
it, due to the large tables that are generated. Does it perform
character equivalencing (redundant column removal)?]
