Will do. (This monster method I have is one big block without branches.) 
Not tonight though, I'll report back tomorrow.

[It's the initialisation code for compiled Scheme modules - the class 
constructor builds all the literals, so if there are *lots* of literals 
you get a *big* class constructor... even if it turns out not to be a 
mono problem I think I'll go with serialized literal data rather than 
emitting literal-building code, it should be smaller and faster.]
