Oops...  This reminds me of another consideration I had when opting to
work on Scheme source: While methods are normally optimized at
generic application time, goops source can be compiled offline.

If the optimizer does source --> source transformation it's reasonably
easy to use it together with an offline compiler.  It's more difficult
to explain the memoized code to the compiler...
