Actually, no.

We have `defsubst` to declare a function as inlinable (which implies
that things like the advice mechanism won't work reliably on it).
And we can also use approaches like "inline, together with a check that
the function was not advised" for functions which have not been
officially declared as inlinable (such checks are already used in the
native-comp code, IIRC, tho just to use "fast call" rather than do

As for TCO, the last time this came up the issue is rather that if we
want to have it, it needs to work for all implementations of ELisp,
whereas all the patches we ever received only addressed the case of
byte-compiled code.

With the advent of the native-compiler, "all implementations" is even
harder to reach, since it means, interpreter, byte-code, and native code.
