You write "up to five times as fast", but I'm consistently seeing factors above five. For the program I'm currently living with (build, debug, test, change, build, etc), I get a speedup ratio of 5.9 with gold, and that's with some libraries on an NFS mount. With all files on a local disk, it's even faster.
Ian, you're a hero.
