I think this is official confirmation that is what they are doing.
The compiler is for real guys. Stop inveting BS - everyone is, and it's just annoying me.
The effects of the compiler cannot be as good as hand-tuned code most of the time, but it's pretty darn good. And developers will have making better than what the compiler does.
Disabling the compiler seems like BS though. It's still on, or their scores would be even significantly lower.
