Well, I managed to push SART through hobbit (the only thing that
needed to change was #i(.....) -> something else - I'm not sure if
hobbit can work with literals now). The result was under 50% in all
the cases I tried - SART spends REALLY lots of time in C.
In my opinion, the only other way to measurably improve SART speed
would be gengc - the C code still conses a lot.
I refuse to use .sig
