Optimization does not tend to make staggering differences.  There is
something to be said for Emacs developers trying to work with the
defaults and not just silently reconfigure them when they get in the way
of productivity not just because of old habits but because of actual
ergonomic or performance problems.

Developers are less likely to suffer from the "I guess it is supposed to
be that way" disease, so they in particular should think twice before
just reconfiguring.
