RE: HP 49G, 49g+ & 50g: Built-in Zints
If I remember my 28S days correctly, an inline number still executes through the prefix pointer just like an indirect one. I seem to remember an inline object executes extra instructions (those that correspond to the object type number) which act as a fix and nop. I distinctly remember thinking at the time that this was an inspired approach.

This would account for inline being slightly slower than indirect.

It's been a long time and I'm sure someone will correct me where I'm mistaken.
