A simple rule for using MHs is that they are designed to be another form of 
Creating many of them at a high rate is likely to stress JVM in ways similar
to loading many small classes at a high rate.

So bindTo is really code customization, which is not the same thing as data 
The MH before bindTo is an algorithm with a variable "hole" in it, where the MH 
bindTo is a customized version of the algorithm, with the hole filed by a 
It's a little like a C++ template instance.

I'd like high-count bindTo to be cheaper, of course, but it's not the design 
and it's not where we are investing optimization effort.  Maybe in the future.
