That is my first impression too. But maybe GNU Smalltalk is already
capable of this on some platforms. That would be really amazing
since it is scaling with every new processor generation. That's much
better than a jit compiler, which is not scaling.
I will look at it a bit further when I have the time for it and report
if I get a clue.
