Yes I do use a &whole parameter, which handles the case of the
fallback being determined at compile time. Once I have evaluated a
parameter, however, the fallback goes to a notinline call inside the

My example is pmap-into, which has the vector-into-vector case
open-coded. It would be neat if a macro could query declared or
inferred types, but failing that we must evaluate and check.

Thanks to all for the endorsement :)
