 They should know what?  Your benchmarks indicate that -O3 is a hair faster
than -Os.  As you said above, the -Os binaries are a hair smaller.  What do
people value, things being a hair faster or a hair smaller?  I do know that
10% size reductions don't sell anything, whereas little improvements in
performance can edge out competitors in Shootout benchmarks.

The chicken libraries and binaries are a good deal smaller with -Os (the size
improvements of micro-benchmarks are not so important here).

Anyway, this will my last post about this issue.
