+Hmm, there's no problem with doing the thing I wanted :-)  It'll only
+disable the optimization for byte, short, long, etc.  The program will
+continue to be correct.
+So, to re-enable the optimization, we have to relax the condition to
+allow "implicit constant expression conversions" also.  If it's hard
+to detect, well, let's forget about it then -- correctness is more
+important than this optimization :-)
+Also, note that boxing is not the only problem -- there are other
+implicit conversions that could cause trouble too.
+In summary, I still think that your updated patch is incomplete.
