Is there really much point in optimizing EVMs in the ethereum 1.0 implementation? There are much more significant problems, like the solidity compiler being buggy, and gas being prohibitively expensive. I feel like optimizing EVMs is kind of like sharpening your knife before a gun fight. I mean it’s good to do, and especially good if the improvements port over with EIP 105 to a scalable protocol… I don’t mean to imply you’ve done something wrong here, or that it isn’t worth while — but it just seems like idk, trying to bail water out of a boat with a dixie cup or something. Every bit helps I suppose, and it does all need to be worked on, I just look at the overall picture, and EVM optimization doesn’t really rise to the first few pages of things I am thinking about. Just my two cents.
