I think the difference is 3 lines for the 4 methods.

There's no inlining VM available ATM (besides SqueakJ, but that can't
run current images) and noone knows when one will be. And even though I
didn't try it, I expect that "inlining by hand" saves time and memory.

Here is a working example (the linked version has a bug):
BlockClosure >> cull: argument1 cull: argument2
numArgs = 2 ifTrue: [ ^self value: argument1 value: argument2 ].
numArgs = 1 ifTrue: [ ^self value: argument1 ].
(For #cull:cull:cull: the difference is ~1.7x if the block has 0 or 1
argument, and ~1.3x if it has 2 arguments)
