No gain? Wow, is whole-program optimisation that underperforming? Given
the bloated size of FPC's binaries compared to, say, what a mainstream
C++ compiler than do, I would have thought that there could be a lot
that could be stripped out in regards to unused functions and the like.
Or am I missing something? The large binary sizes feel like an elephant
in the room that no-one talks about. What causes them?
