Fair enough. Just to finish the train of thought. I feared that having
lambdas be objects will constrain the runtime representation options in a
manner that will exclude some optimizations or just add unwanted overhead.
OTOH I wouldn't have the first clue about how the JVM actually handles this
so I wouldn't be surprised to be wrong.
In the end I would want to use lots of lambdas for all kinds of stuff
without fear of adding performance issues.
