This all looks pretty nice!
Just to check, has the skipping logic been tested to work equivalently
to what we had before? By inspection I think it should, but since it
relies on function call boundaries it always strikes me as fragile.
If you could confirm that (e.g. with LKDTM perhaps?) that'd be great.
Assuming that looks right, for the series:
