I am not very keen on this, at least not with the current code, because
analyzing what is large and what not is a bit complicated and can only be
done in the second phase of the analysis -- when everything is stored as a
list of structures and the lisp code is no longer recognizable.

In any case, if the FLET/LABELS function is small enough and is not closed
over variables, the C compiler will inline it most of the time.

Good question... Actually it does not work, but because of a stupid bug
that also prevents the compiler from analyzing any kind of compiler macro
for SETF forms. Will fix it later on.
