I feel like -graph- is substantially faster, especially for drawing the first graph (when it is loading the whole scheme etc.)

But maybe that is an artifact of something else (e.g., freshly installed the files are all contiguiouis and faster to load or something)? Anyone else notice this?

I'm curious about speed. Has all this rewriting stuff in Mata made Stata noticeably zippier for some tasks? If so, would your typical user-written routine run faster, or would it need to be rewritten in Mata as well? In particular, is -gllamm- running faster - or can it likely be made to run faster by rewriting it for Stata 9?

If Stata 9 is faster, that might make it appealing even to people who don't care that much about the added features.
