Generate primitive overrides for Number parameters


I don’t know how much optimization the JIT compiler will do, so this may be optimized away at runtime, but I thought it might would be worth it to provide an annotation that would allow you to write a single method that accepts a Number but at compile time turns into a method each for each primitive number type. It might also could have parameters so you can selectively generate them, say if you only wanted int, float, and double.


Can you, please, share some motivating use-case? What would be this feature useful for?
