Theoretically, sure. Practically, everything above a minor speedup would be 
very hard, I think.
And, as Johan mentioned, Integers can't be unpacked, I don't see how that 
could be achieved, so for IntMap and the like, performance would be 
drastically worse even if Integer manipulation itself got significantly
