<i>As I understand it, functions are "name-resolved" before the arguments are evaluated,</i>

There is no difference between resolution of function names and of other names. For example, global names (LOAD_GLOBAL) are resolved entirely at runtime (just before the function gets called).

The specialization issue means this would cooperate well with a globals cache (I've got a lingering patch for this, will post in a separate issue).
