There are many libraries that use meta calls. For example
Bart Demoen et al. “Tor” and Ulrich Neumerkels “indexing dif”:

Tor: Extensible Search with Hookable Disjunction
https://www.swi-prolog.org/pack/list?p=tor

Many Prolog programs are unnecessarily impure
https://arxiv.org/abs/1607.01590

But the issue needs of course be also examined for call/n
and not only call/1. Currently Dogelog Player doesn’t have call/n,
only call/1, so I don’t know. I also don’t know why it doesn’t

work in formerly Jekejeke Prolog or in SWI-Prolog. In SWI-Prolog
if you create a temporary clause, last call optimization could skip
it, but you need also a mechanism to garbage collect it.

In formerly Jekejeke Prolog I create a temporary half clause,
only the body of a clause. I thought I made it so that it gets skip
and garbage collected, maybe there is a bug somewhere.
