That is actually my preference and the reason I was mentioning things like AOP at the summit.
We could keep the classes nicely designed but not pay the priced at runtime.

Further back in this thread I stated that the prototype was not faster because of 'interstitial'
costs: the cost of adding an additional function call to get to the subobject that actually
does the work.

I think you have to give up on something: backward-compatibility, keeping certain high-bandwidth
'behaviors' baked in', memory footprint, in order to get gains.

Or do something more clever like figuring out how to do post-process optimization of the SWF
that can set up tail-call optimizations and reduce the interstitial cost.
