Adding any additional internal property for function that needs to be
updated depending on circumstances, definitely will bring noticeable
performance regression, and no-one would want to agree for that.
Still, for me (at least now) it's not clear why it actually implies any cost
(?) If /dynamic/, the super should bring not cost, as in clear thinking it's
just pure keyword which forces no action/calculation from
compiler/interpreter until the moment it's evaluated. It'll be great if
someone clarifies that.
