Thanks.  It's a result of an enlightenment that can only come
after running benchmarks all day :)

Yeah, your name is better.

compilers grown smart enough to realize that the number slot
functions will not change and can thus be inlined ?

Looks like so, I'm very impressed myself.  I'd expect fastint3 (which just inlines a lot of logic directly in ceval.c) to be the fastest one.  But it seems that compiler does an excellent job here.

Victor, BTW, if you want to test fastint3 vs fastint5, don't forget to apply the patch from issue #26288 over fastint5 (fixes slow performance of PyLong_AsDouble)
