I thought you were implying that there was some non-absurd response
I was. But since we haven't even stipulated that function calls are
slow---whatever that means---why are you suprised that I don't know how to make them fast, this week, in an instantaneous response to your demand? Whether or not Mark Dominus happens know how to do something right now has no special bearing on whether or not it would be a good thing to do.
I guess it's just academic hot air.
Please try to contain your disappointment next time I can't answer one of your questions. There was no reason to insult me.
