Yes, I noted this too, but forget to include it in my earlier post.

I'm also curious for the full path of an article that Dave A wrote
about a year ago about compile speeds.

Nothing off hand leaps out at me. Permit me to ask some
counter questions:
1) You're talking about the difference in como -E'ing it?
2) How are you timing this?
3) When you say "non-strict mode (on Win32)" are you talking
   about general non-strict "relaxed" mode, or "microsoft" mode?
4) How "significant" is "significantly"? :) IOWs, can you give
   a timing example just to gain your perspective?

I'm sure you guys have this right, but I'm trying to understand
the details of it.
