10:46 rurban1 I think I prefer basic block versioning over explicit type checks for now. http://pointersgonewild.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/bbv_paper.pdf
10:47 rurban1 It will benefit from types as specified in arguments and lexicals also
14:02 rurban1 maybe not. huge startup overhead, like perl6
14:02 rurban1 $ time ./higgs --e "var x = 4; x = x + 5; print(x)"
