They look like a hack to simulate named primitives from the debugger, but I
am not sure at all.
I am just wondering...couldn't such compiled methods be compiled at
runtime? say I use a String stream with a loop of arguments size and I
build the string and then I get a CompiledMethod from it (kind of
#compileSilently:. I guess it would be slower, but on the other hand I save
would that work? is it important the speed here? because I don't really
know what these methods are used for exactly ;)
