Just had a look at it and it looks interesting. However since it adds a
dependency and introduces its own language I'd be interested in what
other people think before spending to much time on it.

There are definitely many other places in mesa that could easily make
use of these type of optimisations so it would be good to get a feeling
for what people would prefer.
