It uses the pari system which is open source. But my application code has not been released (not sure why anyone would be interested in it).

Having an OpenSource application can allow some people to help you to tune your code (But I agree, it may not happen)

But for the community, it is definitely an important proof of transparence.

There was a fellow named akosf who was analyzing project binaries with a hex editor (he claimed) and optimizing. He was getting huge performance gains for some projects without even having the source. Amazing!!!

Another fellow, Crunch3r, was taking source from projects and recompiling it for them on his very expensive Intel compiler and getting huge performance gains too.

I haven't seen either of those guys around for a while.

Akosf (Akos Fekete) did that at Einstein, and got taken on by the project as a consultant. He's listed on the contributors page as "Low-level code optimization".

Crunch3r is still active, but almost exclusively on the high-credit GPU projects like MilkyWay.
