the results you just posted appear to show a 20% slowdown for function
calls, and a 10% speedup for exceptions.
both things were optimized at the sprint, and the improvements were
confirmed on several machines. on my machine, using timeit on the test
bodies, I get noticeable speedups for both tests; from my earlier post:

maybe the function call issue is an AMD64 thing? or a compiler thing?
do you see the same result on other hardware?
