Your approach is unsafe in that you can have a very, very long (even
exponentially long) series of small inline functions that together
produce a very, very huge function.
The current tree-based inlining heuristics are not ideal -- but they
do go a long ways towards making sure that we have non-infinite
compile-times. I don't think we should change them from GCC 3.0,
unless we come up with something that is better in all cases.
