However, see what Marc said about how to do a proper comparison: you
need to actually rewrite the code and compile with different options
(including --fno-rtti, or similar, for the no-exception case); I'd also
like to see comparison of the size of binaries produced.  Paging bigger
binaries in and out also slows programs down ...

It is not clear how far Stone went in making a proper comparison, at
least not from the slides I saw,
