Thanks for the pointer. The article was

{Vol 6, #2 -- December, 1994}

12. Management of Class Temporaries in C++ Translation Systems ---
Kent G. Budge, James S. Peery, Allen C. Robinson, and Michael K. Wong

The performance of C++ programs that use value classes currently

[Oh, right, that article. They explain in considerable detail that C++
implementations of complex usually have lousy performance because the
variables and often intermediate results all have to live in memory
rather than registers. -John]
