That is not this complicated. you need a final function that check the in

body and the out contract.
With such a configuration, the in contract is checked and only then the virtual
dispatch is done.
It's not that simple. Several considerations have to be met:
1. Because of struct construction/destruction, you really only want to construct
the parameter list *once*, but you're calling two functions with the same
2. Variadic functions mean that one function cannot forward to another one using
standard functions. (Perhaps a dirty magic thunk can work.)
3. The presence or absence of contracts must not change the ABI of the function.
4. The virtual table must be unchanged.
5. It's not so practical to jump into the middle of another function - things
just aren't designed that way.
6. The caller now has to be aware of contracts in the called function, this was
never necessary before.
