How come the compiler does not do this, then? I mean, String is a
sealed class. If this case is actually sufficiently common to be
worth looking for when a method is slow, then it sounds like MCS
should be doing it.
Is there some underlying reason why this a priori very simple
optimisation has not been implemented, or is there some deeper reason?
