[Openmcl-devel] Optimization

   A recent improvement to clisp caused a large-percentage speed 
increase.  Of
course, that's a very different architecture and it may not make sense 
to add it
to openmcl, if it's not already there, but:  Any local variable which 
is actually a
constant, gets an implicit type declaration, without specific programmer
intervention.  This got me thinking.

   I don't have anything in the docs, even the implementation section, 
about what
sorts of optimization OpenMCL does.  I also don't have anything about 
how
developers can profile their own programs, apart from using (time) all 
over the
place.  I'd like to add this kind of information.

   What can you tell me about it?  Where in the source can I look for 
more
information?
