Then the advantage of hot patching is lost and it will be 
difficult to interface with all Dart-based Flutter components.

One big advantage with Flutter is that you see visual changes in 
a running application right after hitting  the save menu item in 
the editor (or keyboard shortcut).

As frameworks grow they tend to start using language-features in 
ways that are difficult to interface with.
