a couple of ideas --
(1) can a "warm start" of the compiler be arranged?
talking to gcc via a pipe might address that.
(2) can we arrange it so the compiler doesn't touch the file system?
that would have 2 nice effects -- the compiler could
run faster, and gcl could run on read-only file systems.
for what it's worth,
