OK - I was referring to section 3 of the "Efficiency Guide" on the OTP
documentation site, which begins with a table showing the relative cost
of invoking functions in different ways. That table claims that a "Fun
call" is almost 3 times as expensive as a local or external call to a
compile-time-resolved function.
