No. The problem is that at function call time there is no indication
that a MMD subroutine should be called. So Parrot will just do a full
MMD search, if no other indication is there that it's just a plain

Another problem is language interoperbility. As e.g. python has no
syntax for MMD, above opcodes would be useless - Python wouldn't be
able to call any of the MMD builtins.
