Not to feed a troll, but I've had good looks at the codebases of several WMs,
including wmii, Ion3, and fluxbox, and wmii is, by far, the leanest of all of
them. Nevertheless, if you want a fair comparison between wmii and other WMs
in terms of speed, add -O or -O2 to the CFLAGS in, as other WMs do.
If you want a fair comparison of binary size, strip wmiiwm, as other WMs do
(~75% of the size of the default binary is debugging information).

As a side note, this thread had nothing to do with speed.

A pessimist fears this is true.
