Did you even read what we wrote? The mere fact that FPC's backend is
more seperated from it's frontend than Delphi's was till XE2 is very
likely one of the biggest performance problems FPC has. And this must be
compensated in unusal ways like Florian described. Otherwise you'd need
to go back to the way that pre-1.9 FPC worked and I don't think anyone
of the FPC devs wants that. You'd basically need to rewrite the complete
compiler as it is currently geared towards that seperation.
