OK, then I guess this issue should be renamed?

> There are a lot of UDFs which would show major performance differences if one assumes
that some of its arguments are constant.
> Consider, for example, any UDF that takes a regular expression as input: This can be
complied once (fast) if it's a constant, or once per row (wicked slow) if it's not a constant.
> Or, consider any UDF that reads from a file and/or takes a filename as input; it would
have to re-read the whole file if the filename changes.
