It depends how deep in inner loops they are called.  If they are deep
enough, then either macros or inline functions are used.  We actually
use both, with some fine-tuning (see lisp.h), because we want Emacs to
be reasonably fast even in an unoptimized build, where inline
functions are not inlined.  (Most core developers run the development
version built without optimizations, since optimized code is hard to

Accessor functions that are not speed-critical can be simple
