do you expect to merge that soon, or can I land Exitification before
that? (I’m worried that I have to re-do a lot of performance analysis
if the Simplifier suddenly does new things to join points).

Blocking for Exitification is:
 * https://phabricator.haskell.org/D4130 needs to land

   Or rather, I’d prefer if someone who understands the Simplifier
   better than I fixes it properly. See
   for bits that I am puzzled about.

 * I need to understand better why inlining join points in the final 
   simplifier run regresses things.

   Unless you permit merging Exitification without final inlining
   even before we completely solve this mystery, on the grounds that
     - the nofib results say it’s the right thing to do and
     - there is a plausible theory (exit join points in unfolding 
       enable optimizations in later modules in earlier phases).
