Removing the Core_kernel dependency for now seems reasonable enough (eventually, I'd like to make changes to Core_kernel to allow us to depend on i…

You should talk to sweeks. His experience iirc is that something of these optimizations are very reliable, some less so.

I was thinking of a compiler flag, since it would allow you to change the behavior in a library by library way. For us, we'd likely leave the defau…

Would it make sense to add a flag that flips the default? That way, we could try it out inside of our walls, and perhaps learn more about the FFI i…

It's worth noting that @diml has just had a kid, and so is probably going to go silent for a bit. That said, I believe we've extended our internal …

My view is that, except for the c binding issue, it's a pretty clear win. One could imagine a reasonable transition story: start with a flag to tur…
