Understood.  What I was trying to say was that this is not a "either-or" 
problem.  Since compiler optimization is free (free in the sense that 
all we have to do is turn it on) and can be done in parallel with our 
effort to improve algorithms, there is no reason why we should focus on 
one and ignore the other.
