Yes, I just did "[(1 to: 1000000) do: [:i | i]] timeToRun" on a self-build
patched Vm, both closurecompiled and not:

With BlockClosures: 1440
No BlockClosures:    948

So it's 50% slower. It would be interesting how this translates to 
real world stuff. I will do some macroBenchmarks for a completly
recompiled image later.
