optimization

The other class I'm sitting in this quarter is CSE 501, the graduate compilers class. The undergrad compilers class covered pretty much everything in simple terms while glossing over optimization; this one seems to be focused on optimization, which apparently is where all the action is in compilers.

With that in mind, I'll also point out that raevnos directed me at this thread on the OCaml list, where someone found their program was 25-30% faster when they turned on bounds checking.
