Out of curiosity, why do you feel the need for a 'fast' version of
function-parameters? I got the feeling that most people thought that
it would not be used in time-critical code.
Most people thought that. I guess they were wrong. I have counterexamples.
I agree with KMP, that a fast version is necessary to determine just the
min and max number of parameters a function takes.
