It must positively be slower. I once measured the overhead of a message
send to be 10x over a function call, maybe not precisely that but still
_many_ times slower. A data point for all you out there trying to
objects as processes.

a circumstance where taking a trip through a socket-fronting process
can be faster than sending to the socket directly.
On to fix my measurements!
