Absence of 'unsafe' C# keyword/switch does not guarantee type or memory safety.
The absence of the C# unsafe keyword and switch does not guarantee code
is type or memory safe. It merely prevents the use of pointer types and
fixed size buffers.
The only thing that can guarantee type and memory safety is
verification and CAS/transparency enforcement.
In particular, the absence of unsafe C# blocks does NOT:

Let's say you have implemented a small data pipeline library to replace LINQ.

Performance between a linear and binary search on a small ordered set
Q: At which size is it preferrable to use binary search over a simple linear search for a small ordered set?
R: Under 5 elements, linear search is slightly faster (from 200% to 10% faster)
But in practice, not sure a switch case to select the best method is really worth it
Unless main usecase is having most of the time only 1-2 elements (so it could be optimized manually without a loop and switch to binary otherwise)
At 3-4 elements, linear is only 10-5% faster
Relative performance between linear and binary search:
