Just wanted to say kudos to the Free Pascal team for doing a GREAT job
with FPC 3.0.

I did a couple of tests and the exact same project with exact same
compiler parameters is much improved when compiled with FPC 3.0  (vs 2.6.4)

For example. The 64-bit executable size reduced from 2.35MB down to
1.42MB. I used -O2 optimization and the application speed went from 0.35
seconds down to 0.24 seconds for the same task.

So smaller executables and faster executables - awesome work!!
