Is there a C->C compiler which optimizes C code? Many compilers for
cheap microcontrollers churn out awful code. Since I cannot depend on
these compilers to produce adequate code, I would like a compiler
which optimizes the C code into unintelligible, yet fast, C code. Then
I can use the compiler for the microcontroller to simply churn out
object code. Of course this isn't ideal, but without an adequate
compiler, I don't know of any other way to improve things.

better real compilers. -John]
