I stand by my conclusion. C translates directly to Forth, but some really
easy optimizations are done in the process. Types make this possible, and
infix syntax helps a little also. For an equal effort, C is faster. It's
also easier to read and maintain. I won't be drawn into a holy war. I'm
just saying Forth has no place in Tunes.
