Your blog mixes things together based on less than names being the same -- why did you drag in Cython?

Anyway, please take the point that Mozilla SpiderMonkey's jsctypes FFI has had no JIT optimizations at all, unlike the nearby typed arrays implementation -- and that ES6 binary data is an extension of the latter, not anything to do with the former.

"Can we at least agree" that you were connecting dots that have no dashed lines between them? Yes.

Common names recur in many places in JS, but namespaced somehow. This case is no different.
