Why do you think parallelization is very difficult? Do you mean
parallelization nfrastructure?  AFAICS, using openmp will be cool. Let
compiler handle all the dirty buisness etc This is something I want to
explore (time availability is of course important !) so I would like
some heads up.

As some one whose programs take days aka lots of iterations (I kid you
not) to run. A microsecond here and a millisecond there matter a LOT
to me. May that's why I don't care if I need an hour to compile just
500 lines of code. :)  But still why bother with compilation speed? I
mean runtime performance should matter more right.
