This is what the Self compiler did, though I don't know if its granularity
was as fine as I understand psyco's is from reading its README file.  It's
been awhile since I read through that stuff, but I seem to recall it would
compile functions to machine code only if they were heavily executed.  It
also did a lot of type inferencing.
