i was just going to comment to Kostis that for the AXD301, the choice between
a 5% compiler optimization and 5% better turnaround time on bug fixes is a
no-brainer (in favor of better debugging).
alas, while i personally like the M::F shell-only proposal, i don't see it as
being very helpful in AXD301 development.
a) it's only really useful to the guy who wrote the code...
b) ...and the function is reasonably side-effect free
c) we already have the problem that the shell is abused on live nodes (by
if i thought otherwise i'd be mail-bombing the OTP guys right now.
