Repeated request to please review this. Since I got no reviews first time around, I updated it in-place with further development -- see the JIRA issue. box2d is down to 377 recompilations by having the compiler do safe evaluation of certain expressions.

>> "When doing on-demand compilation, we can use the current runtime scope to look up types of variables in scope; if they're already wider than the current optimistic assumption, we can use that type and cut down on number of recompilation."
>> This cuts down warmup time with optimistic compilation. In Octane tests, box2d now does 1300 deoptimizations instead of 1552 while it warms up, and earley-boyer is down to 1577 from whopping 3028.
