Agreed (with all parts, including 'absolutely no real
experience' :).  I think the point to draw from Manuel's
results are that type tests take up a fairly large amount
of time (at least in the type of programs used in the
benchmarks but I think these results should generalise). 
Given that the MzScheme compiler performs practically no
optimisations (at least it did last time I looked) this
optimisation should be a win for mzc.
