HIPE'd stdlib modules rule !!!

My app was slow, relatively speaking ~ 20% CPU on an arbitrary peice of 

I HIPE'd the orddict.beam file (erlc +native orddict.beam) and now the 
same app is fast, relatively speaking ~ 5% CPU on that same arbitrary 
peice of iron.

Is there an Erlang Makefile option I missed that HIPEs everything?  Or 
have I stumbled onto something new?  Were there former recommendations 
against HIPEing the standard Erlang library modules?

Now that I've got this performance kicker I don't want to go back to the 
non-HIPE'd modules.  Am I cutting against the grain?  Will Armstrong 
hunt me down?

An inquiring mind wants to know.
