I could be wrong, but I don't believe that that would be a valid use
case, like you, the intended usage is to optimize runtime and compile
time usage, ie:

constexpr int f(int i)


 Â  if(std::is_constant_evaluated())

 Â  {

 Â Â Â Â Â Â  // constexpr friendly code here

 Â  }

 Â  else

 Â  {

 Â Â Â  // Maybe use a function that's super fast but not constexpr safe

 Â  }
