Ultimately, if we had macros in Java, this wouldn’t need to look ugly, but we don’t have them, so… Performance optimizations are sometimes ugly :-) Anyway, this needn’t happen now, although ultimately I don’t think it’d be much of a big deal to implement, even with the unfortunate code duplication, and we still wouldn’t always force-promote the parameter type for the callback functions to double.

Ok, you convinced me. I'll add that optimization an upcoming webrev. 
Still waiting for other reviews though.
