Were they complaining about the speed of Apex or the speed of GNAT?
Versions of Apex before 3.2 were indeed quite slow.  But that has
changed.  And of course, GNAT has always been quite fast.  Plus, GNAT.
unlike most compilers, can compile many files at the same time without
corrupting some "library."
