If it could be  JIT developers decision we would like not to distinguish
between bases and mptrs at all.:) I mean to keep only
'enumerate(base_or_mptr)' method
I'm not sure the code JIT generates will be much better in this case, but
JIT internals will become simpler.

Ok I'll ask all experts I know to participate in this discussion if they
have something to add.
