    It is a cool idea @justinleet.  
    If we could build the abstract syntax tree and then cache that, we could certainly improve
performance.  Of course, we'd have to confirm how much time we spend building the AST versus
execution, but I'd be willing to bet you are right.
    I don't know that we have the ability to do this today though.  At least, I have not seen
us do something like this elsewhere.  But I could be wrong.  
    Might be a good general strategy to explore for improving performance in a lot of places
considering how much we rely on Stellar executions nowadays.
