[Mono-dev] CIL optimizer

Nothing happened on this front for two reasons.

First that nobody had the time for it. It's a major undertaking.

Second, not one is sure that it will yield any improvements at all. Given
is a quite high level format with some rigid structure requirements, there
much room for optimization - at least at glance.

It has been suggested that producing a different format, that is more
for optimization would allow for better results but, again, it's an even
harder task
with the same level of uncertainty.

A CIL optimizer has one valid use case thou, that is to optimize code that
been instrumented. This would avoid the instrumentation writer having to
about emitting efficient CIL bytecode.
