As part of an internal project here; I am investigating the importance
of compiler speeds. Specifically, how fast must a compiler compile in
order to be useful? Is there a "limit of pain", below which the tool is
considered to be unuseable? We're most interested in C compilers, but
data about any compiler would be useful. I would like to collect the
responses and complete a chart which looks something like this:

Language Compiler Target Host Speed (lines/min)
-------- -------- ------ ---- ----------

If responses are plentiful and meaningful, I'ld be happy to repost the
results for all to use.

Thanks in advance for any and all help.
