I notice that one of the benchmarks above is with line numbers. If the Micromite MMBasic still has line numbers then, surely, it is about time to drop them. We have been far less pragmatic about maintaining other features and compatibility. Line numbers are inefficient, lead to very poor coding practices, and "hard to follow" code. Space seems to be always at a premium in the flash. If they still exist then this may be a way get gain a bit of space.

Thoughts anyone?
