...is a paper about automatic specialisation of functions by unboxing
arguments, one could say. I'm only on page 6, but already survived the
first formalisms, which is bound to mean that the rest of the paper is
likewise accessible, as hinted on at ltu.


The transformation itself is mindbogglingly easy, which makes this a
good start: You only have to understand the formalisms, not so much what
the formalisms are representing. To quote spj: It usually turns out to
be more interesting and challenging than it seemed at first.

I'm tempted to write that this is a paper for everyone trying to figure
out what the heck Jonathan is talking about.
