That's an interesting question.  I'd like to ask two related questions:

	Why and how does hardware get faster?


	Can we do similar things to improve software?

I don't know the answers to these questions.  (OK, I know a *little* - just
enough to know that I don't know enough).  I'd be curious to hear someone
expound upon these topics.
