If competing with products in the market is the goal I can see the problem. Usually I try to stick to my original requirements/goals to avoid the endless cycle of "I could probably make this better" but that doesn't seem to be an option here with active competition.

Considering that, my only input would be that generated code will never be as efficient as hand-rolled. I'm running into a similar issue with a project that generates a full type-tree constructor for a given type given the data to "fill" that type tree. There are always going to be edge cases that exist in the general problem space which prevent some optimizations. You can't solve a general problem as efficiently as a specific problem.

Best of luck though! I only understand a fraction of what you post but it sounds like a really cool project Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
