### Be a bit more eager to inline in a strict context

If we see f (g x), and f is strict, we want to be a bit more eager to inline g, because it may well expose an eval (on x perhaps) that can be eliminated or shared. I saw this in nofib boyer2, function RewriteFuns.onewayunify1. It showed up as a consequence of the preceding patch that makes the simplifier do less work (Trac #13379). We had f d (g x) where f was a class-op. Previously we simplified both d and (g x) with a RuleArgCtxt (making g a bit more eager to inline). But now we simplify only d that way, then fire the rule, and only then simplify (g x). Firing the rule produces a strict funciion, so we want to make a strict function encourage inlining a bit.
