I'm reaching the conclusion that the best optimizations
are at very high levels. Consider the optimization of
A = A + B; to A += B; where A and B are substantial objects
requiring allocation and initialization.
Consider the advantages of optimizing away A *= unity; Where
A and unity are matrices. Many of the class definitions I see
have real opportunities to describe method level optimizations.
But there are no reflexivity hooks to use them.
This looks like an impressive way to improve performance in
heavily reused classes.
