Next time I get to it I intend to start honoring the inline keyword.
The problem is that it inlines everything and creates code bloat.
So far it is working well enough and there are other priorities that I
have not come back to it. It is my goal that before the 2.0 release
I can fit everything back into 64K for fallback again. It is not
critical now but it is a warning sign of troubles ahead.
