From the "SPLASH" talk:

"[W]e measured the compilation of a large Google program written in Go to see how
the source code fanout compared to the C++ analysis done earlier. We found it was about
40X, which is fifty times better than C++ (as well as being simpler and hence faster to
process), but it's still bigger than we expected. There are two reasons for this. First,
we found a bug: the Go compiler was generating a substantial amount of data in the
export section that did not need to be there. Second, the export data uses a verbose
encoding that could be improved. We plan to address these issues."

Writing this down so it gets addresses. This was written a year ago but nothing has
happened.

At least something happened for Go 1.1 (see also issue #4252):

summary:     cmd/gc: do not export useless private symbols.
Is it possible to do the measurements again ?

cmd/compile/internal/gc: compact binary export format
The binary import/export format is significantly more
compact than the existing textual format. It should
also be faster to read and write (to be measured).

Use -newexport to enable, for instance:
export GO_GCFLAGS=-newexport; make.bash

The compiler can import packages using both the old
and the new format ("mixed mode").

Missing: export info for inlined functions bodies
(performance issue, does not affect correctness).

Disabled by default until we have inlined function
bodies and confirmation of no regression and equality
of binaries.

For #6110.
For #1909.

This change depends on:

   https://go-review.googlesource.com/16220
   https://go-review.googlesource.com/16222

(already submitted) for all.bash to work.

Some initial export data sizes for std lib packages. This data
is without exported functions with inlineable function bodies.
