I haven¹t done any comparative benchmarks in that area for a while, but
collecting a single argument is a pretty common pattern in the Magik code,
and I had not seen any substantial difference when we last touched that
area. However we are collecting to plain Object[] so it might be that is
the reason for the difference. If I¹ve got time later this week I¹ll do
some experimenting and check what the current situation is.
