.elc files

------- Start of forwarded message -------

In J R Van Zandt's defense--I got the impression that he wasn't sure
about it but merely "expected" the run-time speed to be the same.

"1) I expect elisp files to run..."

Thanks alot to both of you, Mr. Van Zandt and Mr. Raman, for the help.

Please do not make assertions without verifying them.
Byte compilation definitely afects run-time speed far more than load time.
