I know that when a database is loaded into a server that doesn't have some
of the built-ins it replaces them with call_function() calls, but how
difficult would it be to have the server change the call_function calls
back to standard built-in calls when the DB is loaded back into it's normal
server?  I don't see how this would really be much of a problem and it seems
to make a lot of sense.

The easiest way to do this that I can think of is replacing all instances of:
  call_function( "some literal string", ...)
  the same string(...)
whenever a verb is loaded or compiled.  Anyone see any reason not to do this?
