The generated bytecode versions of these LFs are usually just argument shuffling or binding and calling the target. We know that this code compiles down to almost nothing in native machine code and that's why we force them to inline.

and Christian correctly if I'm wrong but it only forces inlining when
the JIT is triggered.
So using the annotation on something which is not called enough will do
As I said in an earlier mail, the golden hammer is the annotation
