Why? (damned! how do I find myself defending invoke while I'm relatively 
against it...)
Till Schneidereit's enthusiasm about it and the promised boost for 
Shumway suggests that the performance difference is significant to not 
be a non-starter.
Actual measurements with analysis of state of implementation could be 
relevant here.
cc'ing Till in hope he's done such measurements.

A question is whether the same performance benefit could be achieved 
without invoke or more accurately, how much more effort is it?
