    Since Mill code will be distributed as GenASM (“genasm”? I’m unsure of the correct capitalization) and there’ll be one final compilation step, are there any plans for a mechanism to tell the specializer, “make this set of code over here run as fast as possible, but we want those three functions over there to use a little power as possible”?

    There’s no such annotation at the moment. You can select for performance, space, or debugability now. We could easily add a power selection if there were demand; it would disable some speculative execution optimizations.
