I seem to remember seeing an article in an old C= magazine about this - a couple different programs compiled by a few competitors, and then timed. I assumed it was in Transactor, but a search through the table of contents of my almost-complete collection didn't show any results.
Maybe an old Ahoy! had it... I'll let you know if I find anything.
The only compiler I'm familiar with is Blitz... it was decent, but I don't know how it compares. I used to use it on my old BASIC games before I learned assembly.

Long ago in a galaxy far, far away...
I had a copy of Blitz -- I think. I thought I could use to to extract ML code. What I found was a "pseudo-compiled" object code. IIRC, it really bulked up everything with a bunch of routines, then called them from the program "script." It was faster than having the machine wade through BASIC, but not that great.
I found what I was looking for with LOADSTAR's ZipBASIC. Limited BASIC, but neat ML results.
