I don't think it's clever enough.  Try this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(let (timings)
  (dolist (reps '(1 10))
    (let ((start-time (current-time)))
      (loop for x to 10000 do
            (loop repeat reps do
                  (message "message #%s" x)))
      (push (time-subtract (current-time) start-time) timings)))
  (message "%s" (mapcar 'time-to-seconds timings)))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I get (29.539774 2.514761)

I think this shows that it takes (more than) 10x as long to write out
the same message 10 times as it does to write it out once.
