My only comment is that the code seems overly long (old lddd was
around 50 lines, this is 750) and appears to have lots of debug-ish
variables everywhere (see the cur_func variable in every function).

A speed improvement is great, but if this turns into something no one
can maintain due to complexity, is it going to gain us anything?
