Using 2.13-M5, it's not possible to specialize singleton types.

scala> def twice[@scala.specialized(Int) I <: Int : ValueOf]: Int = valueOf[I] * 2
       warning: type I is unused or used in non-specializable positions.
twice: [I <: Int](implicit evidence$1: ValueOf[I])Int

I think this is because ValueOf is not specialized.
In my program I can see lots of boxing in a heap trace.
It would be nice if this could indeed be specialized for the primitive types such as Int, Double etc.
