Transcription

Owen: I heard there's a new version of the compiler.
Desmond: I've been looking into it.

Desmond: It's faster, but not that much faster. It has cool new language features, but we don't need them. The code generator is 3.7% more efficient, but could introduce any number of subtle bugs. In short, upgrading would be risky and unnecessary.

Owen: You really want to, don't you?
Desmond (clenching Owen's tie): Like the deserts miss the rain.
