desperately seeking RULES help

GHC only "looks through" *value* bindings, because (as you note) you can get arbitrary loss of sharing otherwise. And fint isn't a value binding, since it has work to do. (Not much, I grant you -- maybe we could take account of that.)

How does method sharing interact with the ability of the rules engine to "look through" lets? Wouldn't an f rule kick in when fint is seen, by looking through the fint binding?
I've been wondering: will pattern matching look through a let even when the let-bound variable is used more than once? I chose "yes" in Pan, though somewhat nervously, since all but one of the uses are free anyway.

The -fno-method-sharing flag was supposed to be a bit experimental, which is why it takes the cheap-and-cheerful route of being a static flag. (Only dynamic flags can go in OPTIONS_GHC.)
What it does is this. When you call an overloaded function f :: C a => a -> a, in a function
g = ...f...f...
you normally get something like this
fint :: Int -> Int
fint = f Int dCInt
g = ...fint...fint...
That is, 'fint' extracts the 'f' method from dCInt::C Int, and it's then used repeatedly.
With -fno-method-sharing you get
g = ...(f Int dCInt) ... (f Int dCInt)...
So the record selection is duplicated. It shouldn't make much difference, but of course it *does* when rules are involved, because there are no rules for fint (it's a fresh, local function).

Is it by intention that -fno-method-sharing works only from the command line, not in an OPTIONS_GHC pragma?

Here's something that actually works. You need to pass
-fno-method-sharing on the command line.
Instead of using rules on methods it uses rules on global functions,
and these global functions don't get inlined until late (after the
rule has fired).
