Somewhat related: I recently tried to demonstrate that, say, a 1e2 and a 1e6
vector each with one added NA should have equal "O(1)" time under anyNA(),
yet apparently they do not---so the other magic bit (about knowing NAness)
may not propagate. (That was with R 4.0.4.) I may also have missed a crucial
bit about enabling ALTREPness here, yet the "gist of it" always was (AFAIK)
that it is supposedly seamless.
