I'm skeptical about "50% gain": I want to see a working implementation
and reproduce benchmarks myself to believe that :-) As you wrote, the
cost of function costs is unlikely the bottleneck of application.
Sorry, I didn't read all these PEPs about function calls, but IMHO a
minor speedup on micro benchmarks must not drive a PEP. If someone
wants to work on CPython performance, I would suggest to think bigger
and target 2x speedup on applications. To get to this point, the
bottleneck is the C API and so we have to fix our C API first.
