I have read that the Intel C compiler (ICC) produces fast executables
(see http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2004-05/msg00021.html for example). It
is available for both Linux and Windows -- see
http://www.intel.com/software/products/compilers/. Has anyone tried to
compile CPython using ICC and compared the performance with the
current CPython binaries?
