David, that is great news and you explained it so clearly to us.

I think the continuous improvement of R performance is critical to R's future. I have some code which uses KD-tree and recursion to do kernel density estimation. It is running slowly and porting it to C or C++ probably will run oders of faster. But after 15 years of programming in R, I have lost the ability to program in any thing else. I am holding out hope that R's speed will continue to improve. Indeed, Luke's byte code compiler itself is almost twice as faster.
