The info about Max and Min args must be around at runtime if you do the
checking. Do you plan to eliminate the arg-count info if the users
turns on this optimization, or will the info still be around?
The info about min and max need only exist implicitly in the compiled
code, if the number-check is implemented in macro-code. If it's done in
microcode as a part of function call, then it will likely be a part of
the function header and thus considerably easier to get at. In the
former case, turning on the optimization would remove the information.
