#4715 is interesting, but is not really about superinstructions.
Superinstructions are not created because they make sense; any common
sequence of opcodes can become a superinstruction, just for the point of
saving dispatches. And the creation can even be dynamic!

However, when I'll have substantial time for coding, I'd like to spend
it experimenting with subroutine threading. vmgen author despises it,
but nowadays it probably became even faster, as discussed by the article
"Context threading: A flexible and efficient dispatch technique for
virtual machine interpreters".
