This is pretty cool.  I've often wanted to be able to do that.

I haven't looked at your code yet, but I was wondering how this compares
with block compilation.  I'm pretty sure block compilation allows
functions to jump directly to the no-arg-parsing entry point, so unboxed
objects can be passed directly from the caller to the callee.  Functions
not in the block-compilation block can still call those functions, but
those callers use the regular entry point.
