Even better:  with enough inlining turned on, the differences /disappear/
(jump labels being the exception).  But then so do nearly all of the
function calls.  I was hoping to speed things up in the case where the user
still wants to retain debugging information.  And I will be the first to
admit that this is not a very important case.

Between this, and Nathan Sidwell's response to, my suggestion is,
"Keep up the great inlining work!"  :-)


If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater
than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace.  We seek
not your counsel, nor your arms.  Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.            - Samuel Adams
