Actually, G-Wrap already does a number of things at run-time: it
maintains a run-time representation of wrapped types and functions and
constructs functions calls with `libffi' when that is possible.

However, it does so *in addition* to what it does at compile-time.  So
you get the worst of both worlds: compile-time complexity, and added
run-time dependency and overhead.  ;-)
