Re: efficiency of large systems in franz

I don't know what you are planning to compare to Franz.  I believe there
are several VLSI tools written in Franz; if efficiency must be combined
with interactive program development, interpretation, automatic
garbage collection, etc, it is usually possible to rewrite
critical inner loops in C or assembler, for example.

  As far as large systems go, Vaxima is about 3.5megabytes; it can grow
to considerably more. I suppose you could argue it could be made faster
by reprogramming in assembler, but it would be a fairly Neanderthal view.
