    Applying the JIT to an interpreter should have some better documentation. All the information is basically there (in blog posts, papers, docstrings, tests etc) but not really organized/approachable:

    - which tools are there to inspect generated traces - what are the basic hints that can be given via the jit driver? - when is using unroll_safe a good idea? - how to use virtualizables? - what are the exact restrictions on their use? - what to do when tracing stops most of the time due to a virtualizable escape - hint(self, access_directly=True, fresh_virtualizable=True) - how do virtualrefs work?

    - what are quasi-immutable fields?
