Thanks Jecel for the great Summary.

The trick I was looking for was the read barrier when using blocks.
Whenever they are about to be used as an argument for a message send,
the 'push' instruction will bind a newly cloned block proto to the current
method context (activation record). 

I was looking for something less expensive :)
