What did you do to profile it?   Is it something that can be easily 

It would be nice to have an automated profiling system to run regularly 
just to keep tabs on things.

If a batch profiling job could be done on the compiler with the results 
placed on freepascal.org it may
prove an incentive for people to participate in speeding things up.
