Since it was released in 1995, one of Delphi's defining features has been its lightning-fast compiler. And now Embarcadero is telling us that the compiler is even faster in Delphi 10.4.2 and faster still in Delphi 11.
This seems like something we can test.

The documentation isn't all in one place and I keep having to look it up, so I thought I'd write it down.
