- The current implementation uses runtime type information 
(TypeInfo) to compute hashes and compare keys. That's at least 2 
virtual non-inlineable calls to lookup a value by an int key. 
Speedup is likely in the 1.5x-2x range.

- The runtime interface is incorrectly attributed.

- Small-key/value optimizations are hardly possible without 
statically knowing the types.
