Both. However, I think compile time is more important, because
we really don't want to clutter our regression tests with
tests specifically crafted to measure library execution time.
I've added a CPU time output to all "execute" calls (this includes
both compiler and test program execution), which shows up in the
full regression test logs (Unix only for now). Anyone wanting a HTML
page can distill the info from that.

For the preprocessor library, there are huge differences:
