yes, but the high byte handling could be dropped...

yes, but since the high byte handling takes additional code space, inlining is not very attractive now...

This is not allways possible. My solution for 'leaf'-functions is to transfer data to static parameters,
but this is difficult to overhaul and error-prone (when it becomes a 'non-leaf-function')...
