I'm out of the bleeding edge, but an important lesson I got some
years ago: the best way to optimise code is provide programmers
with a notation that let's them express optimal code. I worked
many years ago on the Cyber 205 Fortran vectoriser; as good as we
got the vectoriser, most people still preferred to directly use
the vector notation added to Fortran.


The greatest speeds up are how the original code is written
not how you tinker with the code as written. So give programmers
the tools to write good code.
