Well, it would be great if the byte compiler could distinguish between
the two cases, but apparently it's not. So I guess the question comes
down to how easy/difficult would it be to implement a compiler that can?
And is it worth the resources to develop one, as opposed to using that
time & effort for some other feature? I cannot comment on the former (I
know nothing about compilers apart from how to invoke them) but my
suspicion is that the answer to the latter would tend towards "no". ;-)
