Didn't we already do JIT 17-18 years ago or so ...? Is Erik Stenman around? :-) Hipe's predecessor Jericho apart, if Hipe still can compile single functions, then write your own profiling tracker, poke Hipe when you think a function ought to be native and presto you have the (admittedly unsophisticated) sibling of what's known as a "method level JIT".
