    i know, and i tested the patch so i know what effects it has.

    I never made any argument about inlining, it's obviously correct to
    have a use-once function inline.

    My argument was very simple: the patch causes +150 bytes of bloat.
    The try/ex/catch method can help reduce register pressure and can
    reducethe size of code quite visibly.
