That is why I made these uniqueness types, with 1 instance only, to prevent that extreme object creation and impact on GC time

— Ohh, I had an idea, I wonder what happens if I use arrays with magic number indexes

— 

{
type: "call",
functor: [[Function]]
thisArg: null,
args: []
}

versus
["call", [[Function]], null, []]

— for (const argName of this.argSlots) - is this always ordered?

// Type 1: Invocation Tokens,
// Wrap userland functors and any operands needed to invoke them.
call: new HzToken("call",
"functor",
"thisArg",
"args"
),
