Could you expand on this?
I understand that the optimization is performed if a fixnum is used
to index the tuple and if the updates are done within the same
function. This is what I remember form your previous explanation. Is
Then all I want to do is include in the optimization the case where
indexing is done using a local variable, within the same function.
