> Looks like this is emitting all layouts inline? I guess there's not much that can be easily done about that in the current code (or maybe you have an idea). Maybe in the future a scheme where the return/params are references to other constants could reduce overhead further. (e.g. it seems common that if a func desc references a struct layout, then we also have a struct class that already declares that layout).

Yes - this duplicates code for layout creation. We can improve this further - e.g. by referring to the struct/functional interface layout, but I'd prefer if we moved that to a separate issue. Also I've played with things like e.g. sharing function descriptors with same shape and didn't really observed any significant gain in footprint.
