The issue is that many compilers will take "inline" as a suggestion and
decide if it is worth-while to inline it --- I don't think it is inlined
unconditionally by any modern compilers.
Right now we think we are better at deciding what should be inlined than
the compiler --- of course, we might be wrong, and it would be good to
performance test this.
