      Description

      Implement the algorithm described in the paper "Selective Specialization for Object-Oriented Languages" (see http://domino.research.ibm.com/comm/research_people.nsf/pages/dgrove.pldi95.html ), but use the online partial call graph instead of offline profiling.

      The algorithm decides which methods to specialize based on the profile, and thus avoids over- or under-specialization. The advantage would be the speed-up of the specialization for methods where it benefits the most, while avoiding code bloat.
