For that, they need not only a good JIT, they need their whole matrix
framework to support fixed size like Eigen does (as opposed to dynamic
size). This isn't going to be easy for them as the Matlab syntax
doesn't let the user specify which sizes are fixed. So I guess that it
would still be possible for Matlab to handle literals as fixed values,
but that wouldn't work if the user makes a function taking a matrix as
