Another data point: This version of ECL can build OpenAxiom
in the default safety mode. Yay!

[ You probably remember that there was an outstanding bug
   in the ECL compiler that seemed to require maximum safety
   to build.  That is gone now.  I would have loved to see exactly
   which part of the compiler codes was responsible for that... ]

In default safety mode and maximum speed mode, the
ECL-based build takes 3 hours to complete.  In comparison,
GCL-based build takes 27 mins, and an SBCL-based one
takes 35 minutes on the same machine.

But the most important point is that the safety-workaround
is no longer needed for OpenAxiom.  I'm looking forward to
this release of ECL.
