Sure! Do we have any numbers at all? (I know you said it was difficult
I think there are two issues:
There seems to be some debate on (1), but assuming that the optimization
is correct, we're down to (2). As long as the optimization doesn't
take unreasonably long to run, and as long as it helps some real programs
without hurting most of them, we should have it.
