What I'm curious is how the binaries generated from different compilers 
compare on Windows.  If their performances are more or less comparable, 
then I could care less whether we stick with MSVC or gcc (or clang if 
it's available on Windows).  But if MSVC still produces more optimized 
binaries, then I would be reluctant to support switching to a different 
compiler (though my voice is only one head count, easily overruled by 
the majority votes when it comes down to it).
