It is not indicative for it's overhead in what people actually make
use of, which is what is actually important.

Uninlining a static inline that basically does no more than index into
an array is nothing more than pure folly. So please don't try to
weasel your way out of accepting this basic fact.

That's exactly the situation where the implementation of an abstraction
via a static inline is exactly the thing to do.
