It sounds very interesting though. For circumstances where you are
prepared to guarantee the type of objects (and the range of operations
permitted on them), sacrificing dynamicity for speed sounds like a good
trade off.

I've half had it in mind to write a compiler for a Python subset (as an
IronPython extension) that works similarly. Having no academic
background in the subject anything I did would be quite naive...
