We talked about speeding up the interpreter by avoiding hash maps for variable lookup. We should be able to assign statically an integer to each variable.

Unfortunately, we can't do this safely right now because of a bug in the interpreter (#5637). In some cases, the name resolution is not static. Once the bug is fixed, that should be feasible.
