Yeah, that's the plan.

That's an interesting trick, but I think it will cause more harm: shared
interpreter.cpp would have to know about that Zero-specific method, or
otherwise intercept "too wide" accessor shape and narrow it down before
it reaches Zero. Therefore, I believe is_simple_accessor is the lesser evil.
