We've discussed before that we'd like to eliminate the assembly.  We have
just been too conservative to do it without careful performance testing to
give us confidence that it won't be a performance regression, and nobody
has done that yet.  I think it might be on Torvald's agenda.  (If not, we
need a volunteer for that!)
