No, I have shown with exact figures that OP_SIGNATURE is blisteringly
fast, and am awaiting someone to come up with a practical example of some
generic ops that *might* approach similar performance. Until someone comes
up with at least one proposal, every one *apart* from me is hand-waving.

I have specifically written OP_SIGNATURE to be the fastest way that I can
currently conceive of assigning args to params while handling defaults
