[Gcl-devel] RE: [Maxima] 2.7.0 nqthm compile times

The Franz Lisp system (on the VAX) had a file-compiler feature which allowed
you to
group functions that were (in today's nomenclature) private, and could only
be called
from functions in that file.   It was not possible to redefine such internal
without recompiling the file.  The external functions (i.e. public) could be
and their signatures could be changed.

The code locality is, I think, a red herring. Caches are huge now.
