In general I agree. There are higher priorities than improving DMD's optimization
back end. This is a special case, though, because:
1. Innocent looking code can turn into a significant performance bottleneck.
2. I would guess it's a very low hanging piece of fruit, since ref is just
syntactic sugar for a pointer and DMD already can inline functions with pointer
